  DcGentle: As you can see from Chessgames Challenge: The World vs Akobian, 2012, <6. O-O> is the move, with a follow-up of <6... Bg6 7. a4!> or <6... Ne7 7. Nbd2>.

The advance variation of the Caro-Kann should grant a safe advantage to White.

Jun-15-13  parisattack: Just browsing the Chesslab DB, black seems to do fine after 6. 0-0 with a variety of moves... (Here, of course, black played Ne7 on move five.)

  DcGentle: The World Team game became theoretically relevant when they left known territory on GM level playing <9.c3>, but because quite a number of analysts participated, even before this move some new discoveries were made, so maybe someone should start writing a book on this.

It's too bad that this game was not even published by a bigger media outlet by now, personally I feel sorry for someone playing the advanced variation of the Caro-Kann as White and not winning their game.
