Khalifman: Opening for White according to Anand - Volume 3
The third volume deals with the Scandinavian Defence as well as the Caro-Kann Defence.
The Scandinavian Defence is definitely one of the neglected sidelines of the contemporary opening theory. Only just a few grandmasters dare to include
it in their opening repertoires at high level once in a while.
On the other hand it is worth noting that the only time when the Scandinavian Defence was tested in a World Championship Match (Kasparov - Anand, New York 1995, game 14); Black had no problems in the opening whatsoever.
So, matters are in fact far from simple and the widespread opinion that after 1.e4 d5 2.exd5, White obtains the advantage as he pleases happens to be quite far from the truth.
The Caro-Kann Defence enjoys the reputation as the opening of the chess-academics. Capablanca, Botvinnik, Petrosian and Karpov - this list of great chess-champions that have been life-long devotees of the Caro-Kann Defence can be easily extended.
The reliability of that opening has been proven in a period of decades and presently in the 21 century, the Caro-Kann Defence is enjoying its second (third..., fourth...?) youth.
14th World Champion Khalifman shares with the readers plenty of interesting discoveries and sometimes surprising results of his deep analytical work.
