This monograph presents coverage of the exciting new approach to the Caro-Kann in which Black avoids symmetrical castling and opts for a bloody fight on both flanks. Pioneered by Bent Larsen and championed by the German Grandmaster Eric Lobron, it has become a powerful weapon in Black's arsenal.

The variation 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 de4 4.Ne4 Bf5 5.Ng3 Bg6 6.h4 h6 7.Nf3 Nd7 8.h5 Bh7 9.Bd3 Bd3 10.Qd3 e6 11.Bd2 Ngf6 12.0-0-0 Be7 is so new that the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings (1987) dismisses it in a single line, but as National Master Eric Schiller shows in this monograph, it is a rich variation with many tactical opportunities for Black.

In addition to a survey of tournament games with explanatory annotations, this book contains many new ideas for Black. Rather than restricting coverage to single paths, a variety of alternatives are explored for Black as well as White. It is therefore possible to maintain a great deal of flexibility in the handling of the Black side.

Whether you are looking for an exciting opening to add to your repertoire or just a bit of variety within the Caro-Kann, the Lobron variation will provide fertile ground for the imagination. If you think the Caro-Kann is a boring old line, take a look at the new, rejuvenated Caro-Kann for the 21st Century!

The Classical Caro-Kann suffers from a somewhat stodgy reputation. It is associated with draws and cramped positions. There were times when this reputation was fully justified, but modern Grandmasters such as Eric Lobron have breathed new life into the old warhorse. In fact, with the introduction of opposite wing castling the defense has taken on the aggressive characteristics of the Sicilian Defense, with wild mating attacks on both sides of the board.

It is these new variations which are the subject matter of this monograph. The lines in which Black castles king-side have been generally ignored by most monographs, or given little more than lip-service. Yet they have scored remarkably well for Black, and the evaluations found in most authoritative sources are constantly being overturned in the tournament arena.

The bottom line is that Black can play the Classical

Caro-Kann for a win in the middlegame, as well as in the endgame. The opening can lead to exciting positions if White takes up the challenge, or a very comfortable endgame with excellent prospects for a victory should White wimp out.

I first took up the Classical Caro-Kann back in 1979, and it has been a trusted weapon ever since. The first tournament in which I used it, the New York City Championship of that year, remains one of my best results. I scored two full points with the opening in two games, both against established masters.

Most of the material in this books is the result of original analysis, but I would like to thank Walter Browne and Gary Kasparov who each took time to look at some of my ideas in the Classical Caro-Kann, and Tom Magar for his careful proofreading of the manuscript. Any errors of commission or omission are my fault alone. I hope that you will enjoy reading this book as much as I did writing it!
