Karpov's Caro Kann: Advance and Gambit Systems




In this indispensable resource for every serious Caro Kann player, former world champion Anatoly Karpov covers the main positional variations of the Caro Kann: the Classical System (1 e4 c6, 2 d4 d5, 3 Nc3) and the Advance Variation (3 e5). These lines may not be as fast and furious as the Panov Attack (the subject of another book in this series), but as Karpov shows, precision and good timing can give Black a successful defense and even a strategic advantage.

Karpov's Caro Kann: Panov's Attack




In this volume, Karpov shows how Black can not only survive White’s aggression in the open lines of the Caro Kann Panov Attack, but counterpunch and dominate the opening. He selects and analyzes the many lines which provide Black not only with security but also with active play.
