Part 2 of my video series on playing the Caro Kann.

My draw against a grandmaster. This video should provide some insight on how to handle the black pieces in the #CaroKanndefense, particularly when coming under a fierce kingside attack.

There were chances for both sides. I feel white may have overlooked a critical opportunity to play for a win when he had a chance to send a rook to my 7th rank, creating real pressure on my queenside pawns. However, overall, I was satisfied with my play. Though I am sure this game deserves to be analyzed to determine the best course for both sides.

 

My draw against an International Master from Chile.

Alas. A game which should’ve been won. However, I am playing on this website which shows advertisements all the time. The advertisements, with my poor connection, cause an awesome amount of lag in my games. I can barely even move the pieces when I am in a time scramble. Alas, the result was a drawn game when I have an extra queen and plenty of time to checkmate. Sorry, guys. I hope to have better luck next time around.
