Here is a game that I recently played in live chess. I often get decimated by the Panov Attack in the Caro-Kann, but this was the first game in which I think I played pretty well. It went into the Panov Attack via a weird move order though. I think the reason I lost is because I forgot to play my plan of the in-between move 31...exf2+, breaking open his king. What do you all think?
Cool game but you should have gone f5 before e6 , one of the benefits of the Kann is the development of blacks problem child the queenside bishop
A good option for you would be to take the pawn at move 7. White therefore gets an IQP.
Any reason not to capture b4 on move 18?
18...Qxb4?! allows 19. Nxd5! when Black must move his queen to safety since it's now threatened by White's bishop on d2.
Which is followed by Qe4+, at which point the knight must interpose and the c pawn falls as well.
yeah 18. Qxb4 works. or you could have played 18. Bxc4, traded off your bishop for his two passed pawns, and gained a past pawn of your own. That might've been exciting. Also i think you might have had a chance at the end if you exchanged off queens. if you playd Rb8 his pawn advance would be stalled and you could bring your king over to win the pawns.
