With the 2.Ne2 variation in the Caro-Kann Defense (1.e4 c6 2.Ne2), sometimes also called the Short Variation, White poses problems for Black as early as the second move. Those who play the Caro-Kann normally like solid structures and calm systems, but with this surprising side variation, White lures Black into unknown territory right from the start!

The move 2.Ne2 seems paradoxical at first glance, as it blocks the view of White's bishop on f1 and prevents the knight from developing on its natural square. But as this DVD shows, 2.Ne2 is very toxic and an excellent practical weapon for White, used again and again by some of the best players in the world, such as Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Nigel Short and Rauf Mamedov. IM Lawrence Trent examines Black's most important continuations, but also shows how White has opportunities in all of these variations to make the position lively and dynamic and cause problems for Black.
