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.

The Caro-Kann Defence has a justified reputation for reliability, making it an attractive choice for players with a preference for positional play. However in recent years many new dangerous ideas have been discovered for White which makes a study of the theoretical main lines imperative for competitive players. The Panov Attack against the Caro-Kann, 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4, covered in this second volume in the series, leads to a rapid opening of lines and very lively piece play with prospects of a quick attack on the kingside, queenside or the centre. Former world champion Anatoly Karpov and his collaborator Mikhail Podgaets select and analyse the essential main lines that provide Black not only with security, but also with active play. About the Author Anatoly Karpov is a living legend of the chess; he has dominated the world of the chess for over a decade as the world chess champion between 1975 and 1985. Garry Kasparov, the current champion, dethroned him and the two ideologically opposed Russians have had a bitter rivalry ever since. Anatoly Karpov is also the winner of the largest number of tournaments in the history of the chess, with more than 160 due tournaments. He is considered the best positional player of history of chess and is the author of several other books on chess theory.

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
