    it was a good video but if u can show some games revolving around main variations it would be great.... as it was really rapid fire... with all main variations main game... thank u .. it was really nice..

    at 22:25 it should be called the "double fienchetto defense!"

    This guy's hilarious. Utterly confident of positions that seem competitive. I love it!

    Sam 'Kalashnikov'Shankland, very rapid fire. i've tried against the pc but he keeps trowing some strange moves at me and i get confused. it's a difficult opening, this one.

    Thanks 4 going into all the detailed variations and tactics. As you said, it can get very, VERY complicated:)

    At Chicago Open I got to the line with 8. Qb3 Bxf3 9.gxf e6 10.Qxb7 but somehow mixed this with the line where Qxb7 happens before gf and ran into trouble, but played accurately to hold a draw in a tricky endgame.  Lesson: Take care with learning theory precisely!

    I've been using this openning with pretty decent resultes.  Many times I don't try it but this game shows some of its' strengths:  http://www.chess.com/livechess/game.html?id=272959116

    The Exchange Variation is always dismissed as harmless by Caro-Kann players and books.  Keep it up!  That way, I can keep churning out wins like this:
