Crushing the Caro-Kann

Dec 17, 2009, 10:45 PM |

I have been experimenting with ways to play against the Caro-Kann Defense lately. I have always struggled playing against the Caro-Kann because it is very solid for black. Typically black will move his bishop to f5 so it can be outside his pawn chain. Usual Caro-Kann players will then bury their bishop with a move like h6 and expect to trade white's bishop after Bd3. Here is a game I played against the Caro-Kann with the key moves 6. Nge2 .. and later on.. 8. Bc4. I know I probably did make some mistakes this game but nevertheless it was a beautiful one. Let me know what you think of this system. I know it may not have been the strongest opponent so be easy with the comments.

Overall I enjoyed this game and always love a good sac!
