3.Nc3 de4 4.Ne4 Nf6 5.Nf6 ef6 Caro-Kann
Today I had a quick look at this line of the Caro-Kann (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3/Nd2 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nf6 5.Nxf6 exf6) and think this line could be an interesting surprise variation. However when searching fo...

Exchange Caro-Kann with 4.Bf4
Is there any downside for White to use the move order 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4.Bf4 instead of the more usual 4.c3? 4.Bf4 stops lines with ...Qc7 in which Black prevents Bf4, so I was wondering i...

Finnish Variation (4...h6)
Does the Finnish Variation of the Caro Kann (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.Nxe4 h6) have any independent merit? Naturally some lines can diverge back into mainline theory—and 4...h6 can also serve as a...

From the Index of Variations it seems there is no "Exchange Variation" section, but only 4.Bf4. I find that rather strange. Anyone who owns/knows the book can clarify?
