Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-27-07  baseballplayer: This is a very positional game with a lot of knight moves in the opening and early middlegame. Does the Caro-Kann Advance Variation always result in this positional play (I always play the main line with 3.Nc3)?
Nov-29-07  refutor: the caro-kann advance normally gives more fireworks...galkin played a positional line, sharper line is something like 4.Nc3 e6 5.g4 or tal's 4.h4!?

the "main line" is 4.Nf3 e6 5.Be2 with a slow buildup. nigel short did a lot to popularize the last setup
