Caro-Kann Defence - Advance Variation[edit]

Black has a large number of options here. In line with the typical Caro-Kann theme of playing for c5, black usually responds with either 5...Nd7, or 5...c5. Interestingly, highlighting the solidity of the Caro-Kann, the unorthodox moves, except for the tempo-wasting 5...Bg4, and 5...a6, unsuccessfully debuted by Karpov against Anand in 1991, have all shown reasonable success for black.
