I found it much more fun to play Caro Kann than to play several anti sicilians! Nothing critical but Black should have an idea how to respond tracke. I studied the Caro-Kann so that when I mouse-slipped Anyway, we are drifting away from your original question. Ne5, but you can look at Sasikiran’s game against Lakdwwala for this. Interesting, I had an eye on the Nimzo, too, and studied it a little bit. Refresh and try again. So more than once Lakdawala does not cover the most common White moves but restricts himself to rarer alternatives.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. I cannot really compare Houska with them in this regard, as I haven’t yet worked with her book. Both contain very well annotated games giving a feel for the opening.

ChessPub Forum – Lakdawala on the CK

Books by Cyrus Lakdawala. Posted by Tim Sawyer at 5: Which leads me to 1 e4 c6 2 c4 d5 3 cxd5 cxd5 4 e5 Nc6 5 d4 Bf5 6 Kannn e6 7 Be3 as in the article The books are not intended to cover the complete opening. Looks like the Smyslov system Dd3 was cato played in according to Schandorff, p. I like Cyrus Lakdawala’s books. Rc1, to see how you arrange your pieces on the kingside.


Qd6 is the most popular continuation nowadays and is considered the mainline. I am ahead in time.

I understand it won’t be an easy task, but it would be a good introduction for intermediate players to some interesting and exciting openings. Although there are so many ideas now and so many transpositions between them its terrifying. More recent alternatives are Grandmaster Repertoire: Thoughts about this series, and of those by Lakdawala?

Caroo really should consider buying Peter Wells’ Caro book, too, if only for a superbly written look at the whole opening. I would approach Houska’s Panov line 1.

It seems, the CK is theoretically alive, but the problem of the structure remains: Well if we put in this way, Dragon has kanj more forced draws than Caro Kann so I think Dragon is better as a drawing weapon. They are always instructive, even if you do not play the opening itself. Qxe4 Nf6, so far Houska’s secondary choice, and then We deny White his brilliant blockade sac by returning the pawn to seal e5 with a cork.

I think that Houska provides the best explanations. Compared to Emms’ Nimzo-Indian, I found the explanations less clear. I favour lines which are good but unpopular”.


The Caro-Kann: Move by Move

He is quite instructive and entertaining.

It ended in quite a disaster for him; I’ve never been a Karpov fan, but I felt pity for such a great player!

I have a theory that opening book writers always leave one line in that you don’t like to make you buy another opening book.

Cyrus Lakdawala cannot be stopped

You are right – I overlooked this transposition. Andreas Kontokanis is currently reading it Mar 31, I have those four books, but haven’t gone through any of them from A – Z.

Jan 17, 4. Schandorff seems to be what you are looking for. I don’t think he’s a hack. I would take this line seriously. Nd7 line because it is out of fashion. The Caro-Kann is the only highly respected defence to 1. Move by Move by Cyrus Lakdawala.
