I am posting seven Caro Kann Exchange games played by Jim West in Chess Flash format on this post for clarity purposes. In my previous post on the Caro Kann , a few of Jim West games featuring the Caro Kann Exchange had some errata such as dates and location played.
Please note complete score sheets and graphical chess diagrams can be found on Jim West chess blog dated : February 23. 2007.
Notes and Games are from Jim West
In the past two years*, I have played many games as White using the exchange variation versus the Caro-Kann Defense. After the opening moves 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.Bd3, there are three subvariations for Black: (a) 4...Nc6 5.c3 Nf6 6.Bf4 Bg4 7.Qb3 Qc8 (or 7...Qd7); (b) 4...Nc6 5.c3 Qc7; (c) lines featuring ...g6
Also on my recent post on the Caro Kann, I tried to go Global in covering the main variations of the Caro Kann , along with some You Tube video which may overwhelmed the average chess blog reader, so in this post , I'm streamlining on just the Caro Kann Exchange.
