I main Caro so vote for it, but I must say often I consider playing the French too. Its absolutely good to play, just prefer my development to be a bit smoother.

Caro-Kann gets my vote.

Caro-Kann, I love it. But I think the French is great, but I haven't tried it. I don't think a popularity contest is what we need though tongue.png. I love that the Caro-Kann isn't the most popular opening.

nTzT: I don't think a popularity contest is what we need though .

My thoughts exactly. What is the point of these various CK vs French threads anyway? Does voting for one opening or variation actually make it better? Or improve one's understanding of the pawn structures, outposts, or safe havens for the King? 

Anyway, if votes mean anything, I'm with team French. Not because it's better, but because it's what I sometimes play.

Good question, I just made this forum to see which one was most played by the community.

I 100% play the Caro-Kann vs E4. But the French looks great and I've always wanted to try it.
