The Caro-Kann is one of the most solid and respected responses against 1.e4. Since it is so solid, the Caro-Kann is an absolute brainteaser for most 1.e4 players. If you like sharp and attacking lines against this solid opening, but the 3.Nc3 and 3.e5 lines are too theoretical and too explored for you, then the Panov is definitely the solution! In the Flexible Panov Dutch IM Nico Zwirs will show you how to test Black to the limit. On this Fritztrainer he will share his journey in the Panov. The game which started him playing the Panov, his first experiences and how he managed to master the opening. It even became his best scoring opening. The repertoire will be based on the sharp 6.Bg5 move (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6 6.Bg5). Starting with the mainline he will work backwards and cover all Black’s options.
When it comes to strategy, one of the key things that chess professionals understand much better than amateur players is the role of the bishop. Why do two bishops (‘the bishop pair’) complement each other to such an extent that they are a major long term force? How is being a long-range piece an essential trademark of the bishop? Why do strong players regularly tuck their bishop away on its initial square? Questions like these will be examined on this strategy video course.
