Opening Survey: Panov Botvinnik - Part 1

Opening: B13: Caro-Kann: Panov-Botvinnik attack

Player(s):

Panov-Botvinnik Attack against the Caro-Kann Defense - a line that can also be transposed to from many openings, including the Queen's Gambit and the Nimzo-Indian Defense. The Panov-Botvinnik Attack has a uniquely important place in chess lore. After Capablanca adopted the Caro-Kann, it assumed a status as the solid way for Black to escape attacking efforts of e4 players.

But Vasily Panov, a Soviet master, theoretician, and Chess correspondent for "Izvestia", took a different view of the situation and decided to test Black's mettle with the direct action of 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 c4. Mikhail Botvinnik picked up on this and quickly formed it into a potent weapon that has since become the choice of determined king pawn players.
