The Caro-Kann is a chess opening for Black that begins with 1.e4 c6. In the mainline, play continues with 2.d4 d5, however, in the last couple of years the Two Knights variation has increased in popularity, played by the likes of Nakamura, Nepomniachtchi, and MVL: 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 (diagram).
In this exclusive iChess Club video, International Master Ekaterina Atalik explores play from Black’s side, looking at lines with 3..Nf6.
This is part 2 in a series on the Caro-Kann from IM Atalik. If you missed it, you can watch part 1 (looking at play after 3..Bg4) here.
