The Caro-Kann is one of the most solid and respected responses against 1.e4. Since it is so solid, the Caro-Kann is an absolute brainteaser for most 1.e4 players. If you like sharp and attacking lines against this solid opening, but the 3.Nc3 and 3.e5 lines are too theoretical and too explored for you, then the Panov is definitely the solution! In the Flexible Panov Dutch IM Nico Zwirs will show you how to test Black to the limit. On this Fritztrainer he will share his journey in the Panov. The game which started him playing the Panov, his first experiences and how he managed to master the opening. It even became his best scoring opening. The repertoire will be based on the sharp 6.Bg5 move (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.c4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6 6.Bg5). Starting with the mainline he will work backwards and cover all Black’s options.
