The Complete Caro-kann With Im Milovan RatkovicWhy play the Caro-Kann at all?

  • It’s an ideas-based opening – no need to memorize 600 pages of theory.
  • Your opponents hate facing it. Play it properly and it’s very hard for White to get anything going.
  • You get easy development – unlike the French where the light-squared bishop gets caged in.
  • You get active positions (this is contrary to what many people think. If you end up with a passive position, you went wrong somewhere!)
  • It’s flexible. Don’t worry about your opponents preparing for you. You can switch things up in a number of ways, including castling on either side!

Caro-Kann expert IM Ratkovic gets you up to speed in just 10 hours:

-Principled. Understand the big ideas in the Caro-Kann, how the pawn structure affects both sides’ plans, and you will always know what you should be doing.
-Comprehensive. IM Ratkovic gives his tried and tested recommendations for every variation, from the classical 3.Nc3 to the Fantasy variation (3.f3!?) Correct strategy + killer ideas = quick wins.
-Aggressive. Generate attacks in every situation with Milovan’s middlegame attacks. Discover how to use White’s plans against them and get dominant free-flowing attacks like this one (diagram).

Make sure you’re ready for the new chess season with a master-level opening that you know inside out.

This course is everything you need to master the Caro-Kann, even if you’ve never played it before.
