Weapons against the Caro Kann Vol. 2

The Caro-Kann Defence is very popular and as a 1.e4 player you definitely need a strong weapon against this solid and yet dangerous opening. Apart from todays hackneyed main lines (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 and 3.e5), there are some other very interesting choices for White that each have their specific advantages and disadvantages. GM Daniel Fernandez is an expert using the Caro Kann for his own repertoire so he knows which systems can cause trouble for Black. In this video course he explains the ins out of his favourite systems. This volume features the following systems:  2.Nf3 d5 3.d3, 2.d4 d5 3.f3 - Fantasy Variation, 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 Exchange Variation

In modern times it gets more and more important to have several ways to counter an opening as you might want to surprise your opponent or even use different lines for different players or time controls. This video course is helpful to find the system that’s suits you best as White, but also for Caro-Kann players themselves as the author explains what are the best ways for Black to fight for equality. Having enjoyed the videos, you can practice your freshly acquired repertoire in the Opening trainer. This will make sure you remember the important lines - and you’re well prepared to use them in your own games

Caro Kann

The Caro-Kann Defence is named after the English chess master Horatio Caro (1862–1920) who lived in Berlin and the Austrian player Marcus Kann (1820–1886). However, the move 1...c6 was not particularly popular until the 1920s, when both Jose Raul Capablanca and Aaron Nimzowitsch took up the opening. When, in 1960/61, Botvinnik was looking for a reliable defence for his WCh matches against the feared sacrificial attacks of Mihail Tal, he chose the Caro-Kann. Tigran Petrosian and Anatoly Karpov were two other world champions who adopted 1...c6 in their repertoires.
