How To Crush The Caro-Kann As White [Every Move Is A TRAP]

Today I’d like to show you how to counter the Caro-Kann Defense, one of the most solid chess openings for Black against 1.e4. You will learn to counter it with the Two Knights Variation, which arises after the following moves: 1.e4 c6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3.

This tricky yet solid variation gives White numerous attacking opportunities, regardless of Black’s response. It also includes several deadly traps; in fact, if Black is careless, they can get checkmated in just 6 moves!

Below, you can find the variations shown in the video:
