    I have been playing the advance variation against the Caro-Kann but I have heard good things about the Panov Attack. Does anyone know more about the Panov or a link to information on it or even a game that examplifies this?

    Here is an example from my world.

    The Panov-Botvinnik attack is a good choice, but I think this game was lost in the Rook ending.

    Not only is the Panov-Botvinnik Attack (1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 ed cd 4 c4) a reputable line, it also can be psychologcially effective given that most Caro-Kann players are seeking a "safe life" in the opening. Why else play something so relatively unambitious?

    Also, just for good measure, it is named after a world champion - rather then lots of openings which are named after "quite" good players who never quite made it...

    The Nc3 variation is also aggressive with a kingside attack.

    When was Panov world champion?

    The Panov attack is a double edged sword. All Caro-Kan players I know play the Caro-Kan because it's solid..not because they think it's passive. Most Caro-Kan players are ready to meet the aggressive line and punish white for having an isolated d pawn...I myself prefer the exchange variation..because it offers black little play and most lines result in a direct line of attack on the the black king..with no side effects for white...
