Product Description

Description / SHOPWORN - The Extreme Caro-Kann

The Caro-Kann Defence has become one of the most important and popular replies to 1.e4. Its ‘solid’ and ‘drawish’ reputation no longer applies in modern chess. In fact, White could do with some new ideas to fight for an advantage in this chess opening.



Grandmaster Alexey Bezgodov advocates a very early deviation, the annoying and little-explored 3.f3!?. 



This strange-looking move was already played by former greats Geza Maroczy and World Champion Vassily Smyslov, but the idea has come to fruition in the hands of modern world-class players like Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Morozevich and Judit Polgar.



The move 3.f3!? considerably complicates life for Caro-Kann players, as it makes Black’s main problem bigger: the development of his bishop on c8. 



White’s chances to obtain an advantage are substantial, as Bezgodov shows in this fascinating new chapter in modern chess opening theory, packed with new resources, original analysis, clear explanations and dozens of tests.
