A dangerous weapon against the Caro-Kann in 60 Minutes

On this 60 minutes video, we are going to examine an unusual and dangerous weapon against the solid Caro-Kann. It's not a new idea, but in the modern era is fast becoming popular. We refer to the line that begins 1 e4 c6 2 Nf3 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 Ne5!? There are various ideas associated with this move; tricks on c6 and f7, the reinforcement of the knight with f2-f4 leading to White kingside pressure, the annexation of the two bishops and so on. Ths is not a difficutt line to learn and master and will give you the opportunity to put those awkward Caro-Kann players under pressure. As we will, many of the top players in the world are now starting to use this variation, with success.

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.
