    I play the caro-kann defense as black, and I am looking for a line against the panov-botvinnik attack. Can anybody with caro-kann experience suggest a line for me to play? It would also be great if you could tell me what kind of game the line leads to.

    Extra: It would be helpful if anybody can tell me any other crucial lines that I should know about. Thanks!Laughing

    It's like Queen's Gambit without e and c pawn, so play it like a QG.

    Watch the video series from Daniel Rensch on IQP. These games are less about specific variations (usually) and more about understanding how to play a fairly difficult middlegame.

    Pretty darned close.  In any case, after 5 ...e6 Black has been scoring very well in recent years.

    It's too bad that I can't pellik. I don't have access to those videos.

    I also play the Caro-Kann, and this is the line that I  play:

    Some lines of the Panov fade directly into the Semi-Slav.

    The e6 line allows the early Bb4, which puts pressure on one of White's active pieces in an ugly pin. Frown One thing to watch for is the odd move order 1.e4 c6 2.c4, where White puts off d4 until it's safe and tries to get Black to commit to e6 when he doesn't have a pin and shuts in his light square Bishop.

    I don't have much respect in this line because it will left White an Isolated d-pawn which will be the target of Black in the game.

    Thanks 1random but just one question. Is the open file the compensation black gets after qxe5 xg5 qxg5?

    Well a good continuation would possibly go like this:

    a ridiculous and highly unlikely continuation.

    DrSpudnik, you might be right, however then could you show me a better line for black against the panov?

    According to ChessBase, the first 8 moves have been played in 52 games by various grandmasters such as Dreev, Bareev, Seirawen, and Ehlvest. The rest is just a possible continuation, which, as a matter of fact, happened in the game Kindermann-Balogh.
