My Best Games in the Caro Kann Defence-Shirov

This new DVD coming soon. It seems it will be all on the advance variation. 

The Caro-Kann Defence, which arises after the moves 1.e4 c6 followed by 2...d7-d5, is considered one of the most solid and reliable replies to the double step of White"es e-pawn. Black fi ghts for his share of the centre without accepting an unnecessary weakening of his position, patiently waiting for his chance. Shirov"es preferred weapon against this sound black set-up has always been the Advance Variation 3.e5, avoiding the simplifi cation after 3.Nc3 dxe4 and reaching a type of position of greater tactical and strategic complexity – with chances and risks for both sides. Thus, the main topic of the DVD are the white and black plans following 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.Nc3, which the Latvian super grandmaster explains by means of the best games from his own practice. And apart from impressive White wins, these also include two examples with Shirov leading the black pieces!

It has been said that chess players are good at two things, Chess and Excuses.  It has also been said that Chess is where all excuses fail! In order to win you must dare to fail!
