The Caro-Kann opening (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5) is said, possibly unfairly, to be a bit on the tame side. But what is fascinating about it in any case is the number of totally different playing styles to which Black must adapt himself. One of these is the Panov Attack, (3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4), by means of which White immediately attacks the centre, but in doing so must also accept possible positions with an isolated d4-pawn. A second theme on the CD is the Exchange Variation, in which White exchanges on d5, but then does not play c4. It is considered to be harmless, but attained a fair amount of popularity after Fischer's brilliant victory over Petrosian ( Belgrade 1970). It is a favourite of players who do not wish to take risks. The author treats all the variations which come under B13 and B14 in great detail.

  • KOMODO CHESS 8 - Multiprocessor Version
    Brings Creativity Back To Chess!
    Komodo is a chess program that is different from the rest. Its search makes greater use of extensions than any other top engine, which allows Komodo to often see deeper than any other engine, even if it is displaying a slightly lower search depth. The evaluation differs from its main rivals because it represents a blend of both automated tuning and the judgment of a grandmaster and computer expert (Larry Kaufman). Fully automated evaluations are subject to rather large sample error, and applying some chess judgment appears to be beneficial, both in results and in the reasonableness of reported evaluations.

What gives strong players the edge over their opponents is not some blockbuster novelty, but a deep understanding of the pawn structures to which their openings lead – an understanding that lasts into the middlegame and endgame, and is transferable between different openings with similar structures.
