Hi- I'm pretty comfortable with all the main Caro Kann variations as black, however I'm having a lot of trouble with the Fantasy Variation, that is 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. f3. I'm not very comfortable in sharp, gambit-like positions and of the lines and games I've seen, the Fantasy Variation is very sharp and black can be wiped out easily. Does anyone know of a more quiet way to play against the Fantasy as black? One of the lines that catches my eye is 3...dxe4 4. fxe4 e5 5. Nf3 Bg4 and there appears to be good positions for black based on what I've seen, but I'm wondering some of the ideas on how black should play properly.
Feedback is appreciated. Thanks and Happy Checkmating!
