Blitz Chess #362: Caro-Kann Advance, Bayonet Attack

This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 5|0. The opening played was the Caro-Kann Advance variation, Bayonet Attack. Typically a player who opts for the Caro-Kann is looking for some quiet positional struggle, however in this game it was any but! White heads for the advance variation and starts throwing punches as early as move 4’s g4, and black is the one who is continually having to duck. One wrong slip, and one can easily be face down on the canvas.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
