Give it up. As the great Benny Watts once said, the Caro Kann is all pawns and no hope. You have no hope if you play the Caro Kann, and as a result should switch to the vastly superior French.

Yeah all the world class players playing it should just listen to some fictional character and drop the Caro

Kasparov and Pandolfini were the chess advisors.  How often did Kasparov play the Caro-Kann?

They helped with the games, not the damn dialog.

I'd also crush Benny Watts using the caro-kann. Lol

Pandolfini did help Tevis with the dialogue in the novel, much of which was used in the series.  BTW, I found that Kasparove played some Kari-Kann games in the late 70s and early 80s ... 40 years ago.

I think he played it vs Deep blue as well, the Karpov variation but he said he misplayed it or something and that it doesn't suit him and that he will leave it for Karpov or something along those lines.
