Caro-Kann 101: The Short Variation (Advance)

Back to the Caro-Kann Advance and 5...Nd7. Take a close look at moves 6-10 in contrast to G26 below. This time Svidler is on the black side. Morozevich's move, 9...h5, is worth a closer look, although it didn't work out for Svidler here. Sjugirov's 10.g3 is the novelty in this game.


  1. It will be great to watch World Cup 2010 - G3, i have bought tickets from looking forward to it.

  2. I'm jealous. It's a great event, especially in the early stages when there are a lot of players present and the potential for upsets.
