Why would so many hate facing the caro? It's my fav defense! Rock solid!
Have to love the logic!
(i never play e4 anymore :))
Play e4 then go for the Alapin if they try the Sicilian!
I hate playing against 3.c5 in the London System I just do not know how to get around it.
Spock that is not logical.
My mind to your mind .......After 1 e4. Resign!
