|Feb-07-06|| ||gulliver: Definitely a superb game. accurate play by Huebner. Cheers.|
|Feb-07-06|| ||offramp: Odd to see VK playing the Caro-Kann. In Kavalek vs Huebner, 1979 Hubner played the black side and got a big shock.|
|Apr-26-06|| ||perfidious: <offramp> Agreed, though if you look at his games from the 1980s onwards, you'll find a fair number of Caro-Kanns. Also, look at Tal's games from 1980 till the end of his career; it's hard to believe this is the same player who used to face it all the time in his early years!|

|Apr-27-06|| ||asip87: 35. b3.... can he predicted that he opposed to discovered mate by Ba3+,,
i admitted it, it was a great game..
|Apr-27-06|| ||Mateo: 31... Qe6? was the losing move. Korchnoi missed 31... Qc6!. Now:|
1) 32. Qe4?! Qe4 33. Re4 Rg6 is in Black's favour. 34. Re7? Rg1! 35. c4 (35. Rb7? Be3 ) Kf8 and the White Rook must go back along the e file.
2) 32. Re4 Rg6 33. Qe2 (The White King is safer). In this variation, you can see the difference between 31... Qe6? and 31... Qc6!. 31... Qe6? loses a tempo as the Black Queen is under attack, when the White Rook takes the e pawn.

True for the 60' and 70'! However: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
|May-17-09|| ||Hugh the Drover: In a great overall game by Huebner, he manages to achieve an 8-themed stop sign in the upper right quadrant at move 21. The structure portends later control of lines by Queen and Rook as Huebner maintains a sharp initiative to halt Korchnoi on that side.|
|May-17-09|| ||whiteshark: Attacking Qc4 with <29.b3!> was probably stronger. |

and White is a rook up.
|Apr-15-14|| ||offramp: The Caro-Kann could be renamed The Decayed and Venerable Chess-Players' Retirement Opening. It is a good default opening if you don't want to learn lots of theory but you do want a solid opening.|
|Sep-07-14|| ||scutigera: I was never much good, but I've learned to love the CK, not for its ease as much as for its flexible toughness. It's been used against the likes of Fischer and Tal since its invention; it can be picked apart, but attacking it directly is like invading Afghanistan.|
|Mar-09-15|| ||Howard: Interesting analogy there, scutigera !|
|Jan-19-16|| ||Eusebius: Beautiful and straight play by Hübner.|
|Jan-19-16|| ||MissScarlett: An unfortunate choice of words.|
