Weapons against the Caro Kann Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 by Daniel Fernandez (2 DVDs)
Panov and Two Knights / Fantasy Variation, Exchange Variation & 2.Nf3 d5 3.d3
The Caro-Kann Defence is very popular and as a 1.e4 player you definitely need a strong weapon against this solid and yet dangerous opening. Apart from todays hackneyed main lines (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 and 3.e5), there are some other very interesting choices for White that each have their specific advantages and disadvantages. GM Daniel Fernandez is an expert using the Caro Kann for his own repertoire so he knows which systems can cause trouble for Black. In this video course he explains the ins out of his favourite systems.
In modern times it gets more and more important to have several ways to counter an opening as you might want to surprise your opponent or even use different lines for different players or time controls. This video course is helpful to find the system that’s suits you best as White, but also for Caro-Kann players themselves as the author explains what are the best ways for Black to fight for equality.
Volume 1 features the Panov Attack (3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4) and the Two Knights (2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3)
Volume 2 features the following systems: 2.Nf3 d5 3.d3, 2.d4 d5 3.f3 - Fantasy Variation, 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 Exchange Variation
