    15 Nf5 is bad it just loses in fact black gets two minor pieces for a rook and a pawn white is just losing after that line you got very lucky and this proves nothing about the opening espicaially since it was played between weak players and not Grandmasters ,your opponet made a mistake he should have taken the "sacrifice" or as i like to call it "blunder"

    Yeah, I agree with other posters that 4... Nd7 is absolutely playable. It has been played by several world champions. Take a look here :

    (Look under "Modern Variation")

    Apart from that I will say: Nice game!

    And with pawns on f7 and e6 is even his good Bishop... XD Placing a the other knight on d5 Knight b6, knight d5. Blockading the isolate pawn might be and idea. atleat better than the on played in the game.

    Bc3, giving away a Bishop for a knight, an un isolate your isolani.. Thats smart. And he even waste two move doing so...

    I became curios so I checked a few games and found a game by Tigran Petrosian playing this line as black, although white moves were different. I still prefer the classical variation but it seems that it's worth to research it a bit if he choose to play it. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1106511

    15.Nf5! was a beauty.  Nice game, pretty finish.

    4...Nd7 had nothing to do with the final position...no, this doesn't prove that it is a forced loss.

    I don't see why black don't play 15...exf5, since 16.Bxf7+ Kh8 17. Bxe8 Nxe8 18.Qd5 Bb7 looks even for Black. Maybe it was a quick game?

    Why did you title your blog as Caro 'Khan'?

    It certainetly doesn't seem optimal, and playing Nd7 is really not nessecary until white plays Nf3 anyways. Why lock in the light squared bishop when one of the main points of the classical variation is to swap off the (potentially) weakest minor piece anyways? I guess the redeeming feature is the ability to go for an early c5.

    I play the Caro-Kann with the move 4Nd7 and I find it really good.  Could you not call openings trash unless they are things like f4 Kf2.  Anyway 6... e6 is a mistake!
