That precisely has been my opening for the last month but didn't know it had a name until now. For me I have not really known why it has worked so well so thanks for this.

I'm playing in a tournament this year and planning to play the Caro-Kaan! This really helped!
when is the next video in the series going to be released?
I've tried to play the CK in tournaments but with poor results. I know that I need to rebuild my foundation of knowledge about the opening, and your video lesson really is a great starting point. Thanks for the good info, and I will look forward to the next video in the series.

Looks to be a solid and easy opening. I have been playing the sicilian exclusively and looking to expand on my list of openings. will definitely give this opening a try!
