Product Details

The Caro-Kann is a reliable and highly respected answer to White's most popular opening move, 1e4. It has the seal of approval from numerous leading Grandmasters: Vishy Anand, Evgeny Bareev and Alexey Dreev, as well as former Worl Champion Anatoly Karpov who has utilized it with great success throughout his illustrious career. One of the great attractions of the Caro-Kann is that it suits a variety of different styles; it can lead to wild tactical battles as well as quiet, positional play. In this book, International Master Jovanka Houska presents the reader with a concise and trustworthy repertoire within the Caro-Kann, providing a solution against all of White's main options and sufficient methods to deal with tricky sidelines. Houska examines the important tactical and strategic plans for both sides, arming the reader with enough information to begin playing the Caro-Kann with confidence in his or her own games.

Author In 2006, Jovanka Houska won the English Chess Federation Player of the Year award, the first time a female chess player had received this prestigious recognition. Highlights of her career so far include winning the European Girls Junior Championship, representing the English team at numerous Chess Olympiads and qualifying for the 2006 Women's World Championship. She is a regular writer for both CHESS and ChessMoves.
