Playing the Caro-Kann Advance Variation with c5! A brief analysis for players below 1600

I hope you enjoy this!

 PS: My goal is not to provide the latest theoretical novelties on this variation, but to provide practical plans and show thematic moves for black, which will happen very often at amateur level.


Sample game



I played this Botvinnik-Carls defense 3...c5 in my last Caro-Kann game.  peshka.png


Thanks for sharing. In the main line, have you considered 6...Qa5+ over 6...e6?

Thanks for this
