Dangerous weapons: the Caro-Kann

Emms John, Palliser Richard, Houska Jovanka

In this book, three opening specialists team up and take a contemporary look at the Caro-Kann, one of the most popular chess openings. Instead of analysing the well-trodden main lines they concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of ‘dangerous’ options for both colours.
