    I had never seen this before against the Caro Kann. Looks fun!




    Here is a game which transposes into this opening - look for this position here



    Black to play, and the horrible ...Ra6 which to tell you the truth didn't look that horrible at first!

    Thanks chesskid - never have really played this either, but I like it. Here is an old game by Mr Diemer himself, where the queen goes to f3 instead of the knight. A queenside castle with an open d file, a queen sac, and a knight + rook mate 🙂
