Paul Sloane Chess Chat

On the 3rd of September 2019, Paul Sloane, long serving club member, provided a chess chat on one of the club nights. He gave us all some innovative words of chess chat wisdom on his chosen area of expertise – playing the Caro-Kann as black.

The Caro-Kann chess opening

The Caro–Kann Defence is a chess opening characterised by the moves: 1. e4 c6. The Caro–Kann is a common defence against the King’s Pawn Opening and is classified as a “Semi-Open Game” like the Sicilian Defence and French Defence, although it is thought to be more solid and less dynamic than either of those openings.
