Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-28-07  jtd200: In response to 8...Qa5, I've seen in 9.a4 in another game on this website, where white went on to achieve a fine position with the extra pawn... Is there any refutation for 9.a4?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eric Schiller: Simply 9...a6 looks good against 9.a4. Not a "refutation" but Black has a comfortable game.
Mar-30-07  jtd200: In Samuelson vs Thaler, on this website... (I'm sorry, but I don't know how to post the link...) Thaler didn't play 9...a6 straight off, but did later, and the position might transpose similarly... It looked like he just managed to get rid of his bad pawn situation, after which he seemed to have the slightly better game. Even so, black was nearly equal, I think...

I'm interested in this, and another gambit caro-kann line, in response to white's "3.f3"... I love playing caro-kann, but I don't want to give up too many draws in the games I need to win!
