    Thanks for the sharing David. I'm fan of Caro-kann and your video gave me a new idea how it works!

    thanks marco and waj.

    Dev, there were alternative moves that were possible, but it's a mistake when looking at Grandmaster moves to think that you are seeing better moves than them, because most likely you are not. this was an overview video, so i could not explain move by move why all these moves are good. the idea is for you to assume/believe that they are good, and try to quickly get a feel for what's going on in certain positions by seeing these good moves.

    i sort of didn't understand because I saw better moves in that game which were not played.

    Thanks for the video.  I have to agree with VanillaBean.  It was just a tad too fast for me (I'm American, so it's not the language).  I will, however, explore this opening more because of this indroduction. I appreciate the insight!

    I like they way you contrast the benefits of the Caro Kann relative to other openings. That allowed me to gain a better appreciation for opening theory while also focusing on a particular opening. Many videos focus on openings but forget that beginners need to understand WHY as much as WHAT. Thanks!

    David, thanks for this video.  You mentioned a few weeks that you wondered if you went too fast for beginners. I'm somewhere between beginner and immediate (depending on which chess.com rating you look at) and for me, your pace was a little too fast to follow comfortably.  I was able to see and understand most of the moves, but it took a lot of replaying short segments.  If you're able to provide the PGN files for these games, that would be useful for beginners, I think.

     

    But overall, it was a good video, especially after watching Danny's (and your) Pawn Structure 101 series so I could see and identify various pawn structures.  Thanks!
