Gone are the days when the Caro-Kann was adopted only with a view to playing for a draw. The 1980s saw a great resurgence of interest in the defence at all levels, and, while the Caro-Kann justly retained its reputation as Black's most solid response to 1 e4, the development of new ideas in both attack and defence has created a thoroughly modern and dynamic opening system suitable for players of all temperaments. This revised and updated second edition provides a comprehensive review of current theory and, with over 60 complete games, illustrates the practical application of the key tactical and strategical ideas.

Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening. You will gain an understanding of the opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have. The Queen's Indian is an important and popular opening at all levels of play. It is an opening rich in nuances, and many of the modern main lines involve moves that look extravagant, but are backed up by a deep underlying logic.

This book provides a rock solid opening repertoire for Black, using systems based on the move ...c6. The backbone of this repertoire is the Caro-Kann versus 1 e4 and the Semi-Slav (via a Slav move order) versus 1 d4. In general these systems aim to neutralise White's early initiative. They aim for success by the gradual accumulation of small advantages, rather than by emerging victorious from an early tactical melee (which is rather problematic with the black pieces at the best of times). The book is co-authored by Cyrus Lakdawala and Keaton Kiewra and takes a teacher/student format. The "student" Keaton Kiewra is a very strong international master with two grandmaster norms. He normally specialises in razor-sharp defences such as the Sicilian Dragon and King's Indian. Now he wants to broaden his style and develop his skills at handling more sedate positions. His "teacher" is Cyrus Lakdawala, an extremely experienced player, coach and author, who guides Keaton along the learning path. -Everything you need to know to defend with Black systems based on ...c6. -The Q and A approach emphasizes plans and strategies. -Written by an expert on the Caro-Kann and Semi-Slav Defences

The Caro-Kann is one of Black's most reliable answers to 1.e4. It is a regular favourite of elite players, who know that computer-aided preparation now threatens the sharpest lines of the Sicilian or Ruy Lopez (at the very least with a forced draw). The Caro-Kann is less susceptible to such forcing lines -- Black sets out to equalise in the opening, and win the game later. Lars Schandorff reveals a bullet-proof opening repertoire and lucidly explains how Black should play the middle and endgame. Features: A complete repertoire against 1.e4 with 1...c6; Written by an eminent opening expert; A rock-solid grandmaster repertoire.
