“Playing the Caro-Kann (Quality Chess) is another excellent effort from Lars Schandorff… The book is excellently researched and extremely thorough – Caro-Kann addicts are in for a treat: 4 stars.”
GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess
“The Caro-Kann is experiencing a popularity never before seen as it is being adopted by the best players in the world – Carlsen, Caruana and Firouzja to mention but three.
The heart of Playing the Caro-Kann is Schandorff’s coverage of the Advance Variation (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5) which is roughly double the amount of his previous book, reflecting the many developments in the most theoretically challenging line against the Caro-Kann.
This book is both well-researched and well-explained. Opening books by definition tend to be a little dry, but Schandorff’s colorful style keeps the reader engaged. Anyone intending to play the Caro-Kann will want this book.”
