I like to play this with both colours when I just feel like having fun and not playing theoretical lines. It has a bad reputaton but actually it's very solid and not easy for either side to break through. It also takes people out of their comfort zone and tests your own creative skills. Qc2 or Qc7 is especially fun to play on move 2 followed by d3, Nd2 and e4, etc.
am seeing this opening for the first time, guess is the reverse caro khan as some one said...am going to play that for a while and see how far I can go.
i want ply with anather one but i dont know how to ply
Somebody knows 1. c3, 2. Na3, 3. Nc2 ? I would like to play that
This game shows this opening badly played.
It does not deprive your knight it just works more like the Ponziani opening which has a few traps. If you have studied Caro kahn and Ponziani then the theory for this opening can be rather lethal. If you know nothing of it then you are just neive.
I do not do this. It is quite insecure.
Like a reversed Caro-Kann
c4 is better
"If you are going to play this, why not just offer to play black instead??"
easy, this is a changed colours Caro-kann with one more move, why refuse for it?
if you plan to castle kingside it is good to pawnstorm blacks queenside later.
If you are going to play this, why not just offer to play black instead??
My 11-year old sister uses this opening along with the other openings she memorized. It became one of her lethal weapons in chess though she still studies other openings unfamiliar to her. This is white's version of Caro-Kann Defense.
IT is okay if you are going for a d5 push later
From my experience this is great against stronger players!
