Chess Openings: Caro Kann

intermediate
thechesswebsite Opening Caro-kann

The Caro Kann is one of the most popular openings for black against the common e4 move from white. Black looks to play c6 with the idea of immediately playing d5 next, attacking the e4 pawn. This defense is one of the few moves that is thought to be not only equal for black in the main line but many times advantageous as black reaches a better pawn structure in the end game.
