    after qe2 why can't black take the pawn on c2?

  • 4 years ago


    At 8:13 if you copy & paste the following line:


    1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5 4. d4 Nf6 5. Nf3 Bf5 6. Bc4 c6 7. Ne5 e6 8. g4 Bg6 9. h4 Nbd7 10. h5

    Here you said 10...Be4 for black but engines recommendation is 10...Nxe5

    In the line with immediate Ne5 where the black nights end up on g6 and f6, what do you think of rerouting the g6 knight to d5 through f4 rather than to f5?  This would blockade the d4 pawn, and if white chooses to trade on d5, the knight on f6 could recapture, creating a nice outpost square.  If white then played for c4, black could play b5, cementing the d5 night while simultaneously beginning a queen side pawn storm.  Is there a specific reason why rerouting the knight to f5 is superior to this plan?  Thanks for the great video series!  The Scandinavian is my "backup weapon" when I don't feel like playing the Caro-Kann versus 1e5, and I think it has great surprise value at the club level.

    You're saying that black is not playing for a draw in the classical caro-kann?

    terrible version of the classical caro-kann, looks like black is just playing for a draw.
