    Shankland's videos, especially his videos on openings, would be SO much better if complete pgns of them were given.  One was given in part 4 of this series, and while helpful, it wasn't fully accurate.  Most of us can't think chess at warp speed, which is what these videos demand of the viewer.

    The other ones had a better flow with much more certainty regarding your positional thoughts and ideas as they related to the variation sequences.  This one seemed more confusing(ambiguous).  Great Job Overall!

    Sam, thanks for the explanations pertaining to the nuances on the Short variations, particularly on the move c2-c3.

    For those wondering if a patzer can play the Caro-Kann successfully, yes...I...er...we can.  I generally have a decent position out of the opening and lose from tactical oversight later.

    I appreciate the insight GM Shankland has taken the time to offer.

    A very good series - I've experimented a few times with the Caro Kann in live chess and usually brings me a draw... I'll be trying it out a few more times yet though, I look forward to your next series on a particular defence!

    seems Caro is quite a subtle opening - black must be well aware can not play generally ... wonder how suitable it is for no-GM players ?

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to correct one error I made in my video here: I had forgetten my analysis at 19:50, I was saying Nxb4 but this is not the best move because after cxb4 Bxb4+ Kf1 b5 a3! black is a lot worse- I had forgot about this move. Instead, Bxb4! first instead of Nxb4 is best and black has a very comfortable position. Other than that, I think this video is fine and I explained the positional nuances to the best of my ability, but it does take experience in these positions to develop a good feel. In any case, I apologize for the error.

    Thanks,

    GM Sam Shankland
