The Caro-Kann is one of the most important and popular responses to 1.e4. World champions Botvinnik, Petrosian, Karpov and Anand have played this reliable chess opening in many of their games. Present-day elite players such as Hikaru Nakamura and Fabiano Caruana are proving that the ‘drawish’ reputation of the Caro-Kann no longer holds in modern chess.

Victor Bologan presents a complete Caro-Kann repertoire for Black that is much more than just a lucidly explained and highly playable set of responses. In many lines Bologan provides – as he has done in his other recent major chess opening books for New In Chess – two options to handle the Black position.

Bologan’s explanations are accessible for a wide range of players and he provides the reader with a thorough grounding in the strategic and tactical motifs. During his research, Bologan has found many new ideas and resources. After reading and studying this book you are bound win many exciting games with Bologan’s Caro-Kann!
