We are very excited to bring you a Comprehensive Course on The Caro-Kann Defense. This course provides you with a complete repertoire against 1.e4. When we say a "complete repertoire" we really mean it. After working through the video lessons and going over the extra files you will have a complete defense against 1.e4 that will serve you a lifetime!

After studying this course, Caro-Kann will become your #1 opening choice аs black and you will have a solid, well-prepared repertoire giving your opponents a lot of trouble.  IM Ostrovskiy reveals all his opening preparation secrets, and shares surprise variations - absolutely nothing is being held back.

The Caro-Kann is a “low-theory” opening, compared to other popular lines. Caro will totally change your game and deliver extraordinary results. You don’t need to spend months on preparation like with the King’s Pawn Opening, French or Sicilian. You start with Caro rather quickly and get a solid game with ample winning chances against opponents of any level.

IM Alex Ostrovskiy has 9 years of experience playing the Caro-Kann. Alex first started playing it when he was around 2000-2100 Elo and was desperately trying to become a National Master. At that time he got stuck at an expert level mark and couldn’t find a way to progress any further. After switching the opening preparation to Caro-Kann his rating quickly went from 2100 to 2500!  Caro-Kann helped Alex at beating players ranging from 1400 all the way to International Masters and even Grandmasters.

What's this course is about?

The course consists of two separate repertoires based on Caro-Kann Defense. One repertoire is quick-and-easy to learn, and it was proven to be extremely effective at the club level. Many variations are exploiting the gaps in knowledge that most club players have. That saves your time and increases your chances for success.

The second option is a “heavy duty repertoire” for those who wish to upset the titled players. Those lines require a bit more preparation, but the return is tremendous. We had a 2100 rated player beating a strong GM with some of those lines!

All recommended lines are proven and tested by IM Ostrovskiy and many of his private students. This insures that you receive the most accurate advice and boosts your success rate even against the titled players.

Is Caro-Kann right for you?

Caro-Kann is a very balanced opening. It’s neither solely attacking nor positional. That’s why Caro is a great match for the majority of chess players. You don’t need to possess a positional genius or to be an attacking maestro to play the Caro-Kann. It is a universal weapon where many lines lead to tactical or positional themes depending on your repertoire decisions.  Caro-Kann has less information to digest but the returns are huge!

This course will provide you with the most effective and powerful opening repertoire that will help you win many games against players of any level.
