Knockout Novelties: 5.Bd3!? The Quidditch Attack. A Caro-Kann Surprise

This is the next post in Pianoman4's Instructive Blog Post Series.In general,the series consists of the plans and ideas of chess openings both well known, and obscure.In addition to just openings however,I also cover middlegame planning techniques, endgame tips, and anything I believe will help my readers improve their chess skills.Now that you know the main goal(s) of my series,I will proceed to the title topic.This particular post is to help readers prepare an enjoyable surprise novelty against the Caro-Kann Defense.Regardless of your skill level/rating,this novelty is a great flexible surprise line that any player should be pleased to include in their repertoire.On to the instruction.

Next I will present you with an UNANNOTATED high level game from the Quidditch Attack.Unannotated because 1. I've already done all my thinking for the day in this postSmile. 2. because you won't improve unless YOU do the analysis yourself. To get the most out of the game, you need to take some notebook paper and a pencil and methodically go through the game, writing down all of your thoughts and ideas (concerning the gameSmile) and then later (if you want) check them with your favorite chess engine. NOTE checking them with Rybka or Houdini is NOT important. Remember, the important thing is not being right in your thoughts, but just stretching yourself to think about what's going on in the game. The game i choose is not an easy one to annotate. I chose it for exactly this reason. In general if it's easy, you probably won't learn much. Here is the game.
And now I will finally bring this instructive blog post to a conclusion by saying I hope 1.You have enjoyed my one of many instructive blog posts. 2.That you have learned something from this post. 3.That if you have enjoyed my post and/or found it instructive you will pass it on to your friends. 4. That you will let me know what you thought about my blog post, and give me any feedback/suggestions you might have.Also if you liked it you can track my blog so you will know when I post and join

    In the database it is given that 5.Bd3 in the Caro Kann defense gives white only about 15%-20% chance of winning the game.
