2015-June - Recent Caro-Cann Master Games

Jul 8, 2015, 5:34 AM |

Recently, we have seen some Caro-Cann games on the top-master level with black scoring well.

The comments on the moves are from Alejandro Ramirez Alvarez, I did only lookup in the database to find novelties. 

Please note how black grabs the initiative in Morozevich-style with 8...g5 (compare to the modern mainline in the Slav) and how 10...b6 followed by the thematical lever 13...c5 conquers the center.  How many of us mortals would ever see 45...Qxc3!
