    9... d4

    does not seem to me like a blunder from black. After

    10.Nxg6 fxg6 11.Qd3

    it would, however, be a blunder for black to play Ne7 as demonstrated. If black instead plays

    11...Kf7

    he should be fine, shouldn't he? Continuing for example

    12.0-0-0 dxc3 13.Qxc3 Qc7 14.gxh5 gxh5 15.f4 Nh6 16.Qb3 Rd8 17.Bh3 Ng4

    or

    12.Ne4 dxe3 13.Qxe3 Qa5+ 14.c3 Nh6 15.f3 Be7 16.Nd6+ Kg8 17.Nxb7 Bh4+ 18.Kd1 Qc7 19.Nd6 hxg4

     

    things seem pretty equal to me.

    Thanks for the great video though!

    1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.Nc3 e6 5.g4 Bg6 6.Nge2 c5 7.h4 h5 8.Nf4 Bh7 9.Nxh5 Nc6 10.Bb5 cxd4 11.Qxd4 Nge7 12.Bg5 a6 13.Bxc6+ Nxc6 14.Qa4

    Are you sure that it is advisable for black to play 14...Qc7 in this position? 14...Qb8 would have been acceptable but according to my software, 14...b5 is even stronger than this.

    1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.Nc3 e6 5.g4 Bg6 6.Nge2 c5 7.Be3 Nc6 8.dxc5 h5 9.Nf4 d4 10.Nxg6 fxg6 11.Qd3 Nge7 12.Ne4

    I think that you might have overlooked that if black plays 11...Kf7 instead of the knight move that you suggested then he is still hanging on in this position.

    1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.Nc3 e6 5.g4 Bg6 6.Nge2 c5 7.Be3 Nc6 8.dxc5 h5 9.Nf4 Bh7 10.Bb5 hxg4 11.Qxg4 Nh6

    wouldn't black be better advised to play 11...Bxc2 instead of the move that you suggested in this position?

    @maturner, he gives his opinion on the exf6 variation and the bronstein larsen variations in part 4... in short, he's not too fond of either approaches

    KissThanks for the video. I would like your input on the c6-c5 variation and also Bronstein-Larsen and exf6 variations.

    Very advanced stuff there Shanky! I did though enjoy listening to you explain the plans behind each variation - explaining the variation is one thing but fully explaining what white and black are trying to achieve is another - and you did a very good job at it! Almost like having a personal coach... (hint - Indian defences next series Wink) if I played the Caro-Kann enough I'd try a few of these lines out, black looks good for the middlegame in lots of lines!

    Has anyone put this Caro-Kan series into PGN format?  If not I may go ahead and do it myself, but I'd rather take your hardwork or pay for it. Laughing

    awesome video, I like seeing an opening for black that allows the pieces to be well placed
