Black Double Fianchettos In Process
Compiled by fredthebear

The intent is for Black to play b6 or b5 and g6 or g5. Complete fianchettos may never materialize. Or, some form later after a bishop relocation.

This is a mostly unedited collection split. Many White fianchetto games need to be removed, particularly English/Reti games. Sight under construction by Fredthebear.
