I wanted to ask how white should properly play against the caro kann defense ?
I think the theory is : 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4.Nxd4 Bf5 5.Ng3 Bg6 6.h4 h6 7. Nf3 Nd7 8. h5 Bh7 9.Bd3 Bxd3 10. Qxd3 Ngf6 11. Bd2 Qc7 12. 0-0-0
It's something like that.
I play the CK a lot, and more often than not white plays the advanced variation.
I know the main line in caro kann after it it looks like white is in a disadvantage .
A matter of taste.
You can go 3.e5 (which is currently the most fashionable) or 3.Nc3, or play the traditional Panov attack. It's a game of chess in all three instances.
3.e5 is sharpest, 3.Nc3 the solid positional line, while the Panov is a very technical variation.
