Cram the Caro-Kann Defence, Part 2 | Chess Openings Explained

National Master Julian Proleiko teaches you lines from 1.e4 c6. This is the finale of a series of lectures where Julian deals with a complex where Black puts his pawns on d5 and c6. Study along with Julian:

B10 Caro-Kann, anti-anti-Caro-Kann defence
B12 Caro-Kann, advance variation


  1. Thanks for exhaustive analysis – I learnt a lot new ideas!

  2. Can u cover Sicilian kan variation I think is a nice opening thnx .

  3. Btw this guy is Ben Finegold's apprentice if y'all dont know

  4. in her book the Caro-Kann (2015) Jovanka Houska recommends playing c5 in advance variation, and after 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. e5 c5 4. dxc5 we play e6 not Nc6. But in my experience people (at least class C and class B players) do not take on c5 too often.

  5. He starts with the accelerated Panov and then moves on to the advance variation around 12:50. He talks a bit about the c5 variation starting around 26:10.

  6. playing blitz on Li chess it's amazing how many people meet bf5 in the advanced with be3. is this just a bad move? allowing bxb and eliminating the poor bishop?
