    I've had a flawless record playing against the Caro-Kann in OTB... So I guess I'm a bit biased against it.

    Love the's a fascinating reply for the 2nd player. Now here's some food for thought. Upon recently reviewing the Scandinavian Defense (formerly the "Center-Counter Defense") I found the following quote from the late Danish grandmaster Bent Larsen. After Karpov-Larsen (unsure on the date) Hort remarked "Of course (you would play that), you are a Scandinavian!" To which Larsen replied, "Yes, but it is just a good version of the Caro-Kann".

    2.f4 is a bit stupid. Just play 2...d5.

    The problem with the caro is the short variation..... and modern theory seems to say that white has a much better position if black can't force a draw (MVL style).
