The Caro-Kann Exchange Variation from White’s Perspective
GM Perelshtyen shows how to employ the Exchange Variation as he often has at the GM Level. The Exchange Variation 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 is a very subtle line for white to fight for a long-term positional advantage based on the rapid development of your two bishops that will make it very difficult in turn for black to develop his bishops to active diagonals.
