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.
