In his DVD on the Caro Kaan, Grandmaster Davies gives the following line as a way of playing against the exchange variation 1.e4 c6, 2.d4 d5, 3.exd cxd and Bd3, as popularised by the great Fischer. He cites an old idea of Tartakower, to play ...Qc7 to prevent the dark squared bishop coming to f4. If white develops naturally with Nf3 then its fine, however, white can gain time on the queen with the inventive Ne2 planning Bf4 anyway. It appears to me that the line is wholly faulty, please check it out and tell me what you guys think.

while i really like the idea, it seems to me not to be very sound, if there are any Karo Canners out there, can you suggest a simple and easy line against the exchange variation - regards Robbie.
