Blitz Chess #378: English Opening, Caro-Kann System

Blitz Chess #378: English Opening, Caro-Kann System

Oct 31, 2016, 10:54 PM 1

This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 5|0. The opening played was an English Opening where black opts for a Caro-Kann System. When white deploys the king bishop on the long diagonal, this can sometimes make black's queenside development, namely the activation of the queen bishop a little tricky. Black looks to quickly negate the long diagonal pressure with a d5 and c6 structure and get the bishop outside the pawn structure as soon as possible, just as one does in the Caro-Kann Defense. What would be the key pawn breaks once white seizes some queenside space with c5? Without the key pawn breaks, the rooks will not play!
