Former world champion Anatoly Karpov is a living legend, the winner of more tournaments than any other player in history. His opening analysis is absolutely definitive. In this indispensable resource for every serious player, he covers the main positional variations of the Caro Kann: the Classical System (1 e4 c6, 2 d4 d5, 3 Nc3) and the Advance Variation (3 e5). These lines may not be as fast and furious as the Panov Attack (the subject of another book in this series), but as Karpov shows, precision and good timing can give Black a successful defense and even a strategic advantage.
