Two common questions

1.e4c6 2.d4d5 3.e5Na6?!
What do you think about this? seems ok, since white shouldn't play 3. Bxh6, because black would end up having a open b-file and thieir white-squared bishop might end up being stronger later on.

Caro Kann Fanstay Line
I read somewhere on the net that someone( can't remember who) has used this varation for years and has scored really well!
Any comments on what the best line is against this varation.
