What’s this course about?
The course consists of two separate repertoires based on the Caro-Kann Defense. One repertoire is quick-and-easy to learn, and it was proven to be extremely effective at the club level.
Many variations are exploiting the gaps in knowledge that most club players have. That saves your time and increases your chances for success.
The second option is a “heavy duty repertoire” for those who wish to upset the titled players. Those lines require a bit more preparation, but the return is tremendous. We’ve seen a 2100 rated player beating a strong GM with some of those lines!
All recommended lines are proven and tested by IM Ostrovskiy and many of his private students. This ensures that you receive the most accurate advice and boost your success rate even against the titled players.

The Caro-Kann is a very balanced opening. It’s neither solely attacking nor positional. That’s why the Caro-Kann is a great match for the majority of chess players. You don’t need to be a positional genius or an attacking maestro to play the Caro-Kann.
It is a universal weapon where many lines lead to tactical or positional themes depending on your repertoire decisions. The Caro-Kann has less information to digest but the returns are huge!
