Starting Out: The Caro-Kann Defense (Download)
The Caro-Kann Defense has a well-deserved and established reputation as an incredibly solid and, at the same time, dynamic answer to 1.e4 by White. The Caro-Kann appeals to all types of players, but is especially useful to players of Black who prefer a sound platform on which to build and who are resourceful in both defense and counterattack. Star players who enjoy using the Caro-Kann include Vishy Anand, Michael Adams and the legendary Anatoly Karpov.
In this easy-to-read guide, Grandmaster Joe Gallagher goes back to the basics of the Caro-Kann, studying the key principles of its many variations. Throughout the book there is an abundance of notes, tips, warnings and exercises to help the improving player, while important strategies, ideas and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated.
