The 2.Ne2 Variation of the Caro-Kann (1.e4 c6 2.Ne2), sometimes called the Short variation, is an ostentatious try by White to get Black out of his comfort zone as early as move 2. Caro-Kann players typically love their solid structures and modest setups, but with this bamboozling sideline they will be forced to enter unknown territory right from the off!

The move itself looks extremely counter intuitive, blocking in the bishop and developing the knight to a less natural position. However, as this DVD will show, this baffling move is full of venom and is an excellent practical weapon for the first player, gaining a seal of approval from some of the world's best including GMs Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Nigel Short, and Rauf Mamedov. IM Lawrence Trent will discuss the main variations Black has at his disposal, but how with each one White has a number of ways to keep the position full of play and dynamic possibilities, leading to games which loyal Caro players will have difficulty dealing with.
