GM Sam Shankland brings his series on the Caro Kann to a close today. He reviews the game Inarkiev-Riazantsev from last year, and he highlights Riazntsev's ability to open the center quickly as black, without giving white any weaknesses to target. Shankland suggests Riazantsev is one of the strongest players in the world to consistently feature the Caro as a main part of his repertoire. The game ends with a brilliant attack against the white king.
