This indicates that a Caro-Kanplayer observes the world as a flat plane. You can see this by that he never goes straight to his goal, but moves more sideward. As if he was a crab.
If their knights have to chose between a move forwards or sidewards, than the latter has the preferation. The movements of his knights look like the pincers of a crab.
You see, I live my preoccupations to the full.
At playing the Caro-Kan belongs a special mentality. Chess hasn’t to be beautiful, as long as it gains points. "With white we try to win, with black a draw will do."
The move 1. ... c6 indicates a person who draws the game to his own territory immediately.
All theory of real openings is avoided this way. Everything serves the one main goal: trade all pieces off and make a draw with black.
What I have done for weird moves to let my queen escape from blacks pursuit-madness!
Besides, you don’t know for sure that you are going to play the Caro-Kan. It can be that other opening of similar twodimensional picture of the world: the French. (1. e4 e6)
As you see frustation and anger of years come above for my own incapability to punish such destructive ways of playing. It’s difficult to play chess when you are haunted by thoughts as: "This is really poor", "People who play like that deserve punishment." or "It should be forbidden."
Anyway, here is my game that I lost last friday at my local chessclub.
