The Caro-Kann Defence remains a very popular option for Black at all levels of chess. It has always enjoyed a solid reputation, but if anything its popularity has increased in recent years with the realization that the Caro-Kann can also be employed with the intention of reaching sharp dynamic positions, rich in possibilities for both sides and with a guarantee of genuine counterplay for Black.

In this book, International Master Jovanka Houska presents the reader with a complete Caro-Kann repertoire, which is based primarily on her own repertoire she has used with success over many years at international level. Houska provides a comprehensive update on her popular 2007 book Play the Caro-Kann and focuses on key new developments since then. She offers solutions against all of White's main options and efficient methods to deal with tricky sidelines. She examines important tactical and strategic plans for both sides and deals with key move order issues. This book tells you everything you need to know about playing the Caro-Kann.

Inexperienced Caro-Kann players might learn best by going through the most common variations (3.Nc3, the Panov-Botvinnik Attack (3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4) and the Advance (3.e5)) and playing through the main lines. Jovanka Houska points out all the key manoeuvres, pawn breaks and general strategies to be aware of.

More experienced Caro-Kann players will want to delve deeper into the chapters and become experts in their lines. Happily, Houska’s book is both accessible and thorough, so suitable for all levels of player.
