My son (who's a lot stronger than me) has spent his life dissing the CK but over the last year he's taken it up.
It suits a certain type of player and it's great if you happen to be a slav player but it can transpose into so many different openings you have to look out for transpositions

I used to play it a lot but binned it for two reasons. 1. I think the classical variation is lost in CC with best play. 2. a bit passive. Ironically I switched to the scando (which is just a poor mans Caro-Kann in a way.) Caro is quite a sharp opening with lots of transpo - I always found the Goldman line a bit tricky to play against suprised its not used ake it on the chin that one needs to learn the sicilian at some point - dragondorf here I come.

I love the Panov-Botvinik Attack... its just so open that its even better than the King's Gambit.
