Over 4 hours of instruction from legendary British Author International Master Andrew Martin Product DescriptionMentioned by Polerio as early as 1590, it was Horatious Caro of Berlin and Markus Kann of Vienna who introduced 1...c6 into competitive play all the way back in the second half of the nineteenth century. At that time, swashbuckling attacking play usually connected with gambits was very popular and so it was hardly surprising that this defence was regarded as dry and boring. After Steinitz, when defensive principles began to be more fully appreciated, we saw an upsurge of interest in defences such as the Caro-Kann and it was no less a fi gure than Jose-Raul Capablanca who would use our defence as one of the main weapons in his armoury. It suited his outstanding positional style very well. Later adherents included, Flohr, Nimzowitsch, Tartakower, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Karpov, Leko and Kramnik. Here we see a definite trend among fierce competitors of a similar inclination. Solidity above all, but solidity with promise! The ABC of the Caro Kann uses the Fritz Media System to allow the author to teach you (using video footage) while animating explanatory variations on a 2D chess board. This DVD describes a repertoire for Black which will stand the test of time and the main ideas and themes of the opening are explained in Andrew Martin's usual friendly, accessible style. The Caro-Kann is a permanent defence to 1 e4!
Video running time: 4 h 13 min. Martin is a professional chess teacher and coach in England (currently teaching at eight schools) and is the chief coach of the English national Junior squad (ages 8-18). He was coach to four World Youth Champions and a host of English national junior champions - clearly Martin understands how to communicate chess knowledge to his students with great success and outstanding results!
