LIVE Blitz Chess Commentary #318: Caro-Kann Defense, Rasa-Studier Gambit Declined
This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 3|2. The opening was the Caro-Kann Defense with white opting for the Rasa-Studier Gambit. The main idea with the Caro-Kann Defense is to mobilize the queen bishop, however one may have to think twice about doing so. Deploying the bishop along the typical c8-h3 diagonal permits white a kingside pawn storm which can gain valuable tempi, especially in cases with opposite sides castling.
