  • if you want to stay against 1...c6 within the English, then Marin's book is the best; if you want to transpose to the Slav, just play 2.d4; if you want to play a caro-kann, try 2.e4, and it will very likely transpose to a Panow (consult Karpov's book on the Panow f.e.).

  • I'm not sure there are any books about that. Caro Kann is defined as 1. e4 c6. But if you are referring to Black setups with an early ...c6 (and without ...e5), the so-called "Anglo-Slav" (1. c4 c6), Marin's IInd Volume covers that extensively.

  • $15 per class, yes. I bought a bulk of 10 classes. He offers a course, but he also offers personal training on lines you might have questions on. If you are interested, PM me, I can get you in contact with him.

  • well just a moment: the GM teaches each class for $15? or is it different currency?
