Caro Two Knights
Hello all,
It seems to me that the line 1.e4 c6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 is underrated. Why is this line so unpopular? Can black really gain equality so quickly?

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.
