    Why has nobody tried playing 1...f6 and 2... e5 for black if white tries 1.d4 - It could be the new opening to take the world of chess by storm.

    I suggest all caro kahners out there give it a go and report your results back to me.

    Come on T, you know there is absolutely no correlation between that nonsense and the Caro-Kann. The CK IS a sound opening...unless of course Karpov knows nothing about Chess

    because the king is on the e-file and the queen on the d-file, not the other way around.

    Well, black needs to be sure to try the flipped "exchange variation."

    Of course he knows, he's just crazy like that.

    Or perhaps why does no one play c6 and d5 against d4? on another note "KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!"

    In my opinion, black might as well play the French rather than the CK, which is more awkward and less hopeful on winning, but rather more on drawing.

    I think that rubberjaw, who despite his behavior on this site knew a great deal about the Caro-Kann, said it well, that the Caro-Kann considers black's light-squared as a higher priority, while the French considers the immediate c7-c5 push (which the Caro-Kann eventually strives for) as a higher priority, which is equally important as it builds a larger central and queenside front.

    Well yeah, the purpose of the CK is to develope the queenside bishop but I find that's not always guarenteed. Also white usually gets to attack for most the game.

    White can also obtain a pretty nasty attack in some variations of the French, too.

    I say we all should play the Scandinavian and forget about this girly "preparation" nonsense. >_>

    Horatio Caro and Marcus Kann, maybe Kahn was some metamorphosis of their names ...
