  1. ive recently started learning chess and took to the scandinavian defence, ive noticed when they dont accept the opening pawn trade knowing how to play from the caro-kann is very handy knowledge, or atleast it feels like it to my untrained brain, apologies if this is touched on in the video i just started watching

  2. Bruh this is lot to take in. So much information and movements in 10 minutes. If this is one opening and I know there are fuck ton of openings available, I'm fucked. It's so hard to remember every movement individually.

  3. I am a beginning, chess player, and I am trying to learn, but I struggle to memorize the moves. I am supposed to make based on what my opponent does. Any tips?

  4. Finally, a way to learn 5 chess openings in the time it takes my darn sibling to get out of the bathroom! I will be invincible once my rating increases by 50% and I can finally not get tired while waiting for the person in there to "gather privacy" or whatever! Truly a godsend. Or not; I haven't watched the video yet.

  5. Gotham thank you so much for learning me to play Caro-Kann Defense, now i could finally outplay my father.

  6. The moves are actually pretty obvious when you get used to it

  7. Me learning how to play the caro Khan so my opponent can play h5

  8. cash is so drop dead down the heels inlove with you he is so gay for u

  9. And you can do caro kann in white by moving pawn to f3 and g4 which is called Stupid Opening

  10. my crush likes to play that.

  11. My Gamer Tag is KaanCaro I need to master this

  12. btw, he has a Caro-Kann 35min lesson, if yall want to learn about it 🙂

  13. Really like how you explained how to deal with the most common moves you face with the Caro-Kann.

  14. What do u do when white goes queen h5 on the second move?

  15. I know this is a super old video but, why do you think other youtubers don't share your love for the caro Khan? I know your personal attachment from your other video on it, but have you just put so much time into that you overcome the short comings of the opening? Or is there another reason its not more popular on YouTube?

  16. 2:00 We can play pawn h6 to slide back our bishop if the opponent threatens or wants to exchange and u don't.

  17. You didn't say what happens if white plays pawn to e5 on the second move..??

  18. 0:49 – The exchange variation

    2:15 – Exchange variation – Panov variation

    3:07 – knight to c3 protect variation

    4:59 – knight to d2 protect variation

    5:07 – f3 protect variation (fantasy variation)

    6:27 – advance variation1, c5

    6:52 – advance variation2, knight to c6 (main line variation)

  19. Very nice. At 6:20 tho I found it a bit weird that you dismissed this variant so quickly. I found the 2 knights variation to be quite popular in guides for white these days (e.g. t6rMMIO9Kqg). Especially after … Bf5 (the most common move here in the wood tiers) white has Ng3, and after the natural drop back to g6 white has the very uncomfortable h4. After … h6, Ne5 black at least loses the bishop pair and gets a doubled pawn, because … Bh7 is countered by Qh5.

  20. Since I started playing this opening my winning percentage with black has dropped by 3-4%. Can only recommend this great opening

  21. It can't be that fast in a real game. Depending on
    the opponent

  22. I love how he has a 10 min video to learn the Karo but a 35 min video how to destroy it 😂😂😂😂

  23. Please teach the slav defense.
    Thank you

  24. I played two matches with the same person and won them both and it said i got an award featuring the caro kann defense so thats why im here

  25. How about 10 minutes of the Duras gambit. I do love wird openings.

  26. Hey Levy my name is Matt. I have always played chess growing up but never put much interest into it until this year. In the past 2 months I’ve gone from about 300 elo to 700 elo. I have been very intentional with learning from my errors and gaining new knowledge and a lot of that has come from you and your channel. So I wanted to say thank you and congratulate you and all the great content you are creating. Cheers

  27. My white openings are SOOOO bad. What is a good white opening to practice for a noob?
