1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 Qxd5?!?
This may seem a bit mad - but if a Caro-Kann guy does not fancy the Panov-Botvinnik what do you think about this for a way out back to Scandi territory? I suppose White can omit Nc3 and go for c4 line...

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.

13... Qb6!? Main Caro
Qb6 in the main line of the Caro-Kann seems to be very intresting, Negi's line doesn't lead to any advantage after 15... Qa5. Does White have anything after 13... Qb6?
