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.

  1. Bayonette attack seems very double edged. If black gets the bishop trapped behind the pawn wall it works out, but white's king is completely exposed when the attack breaks down. I played it the other day locked in black behind the pawns, but know that king safety is nothing for white here.

  2. saw bayonet attack in the title and hoped for a KID but a caro is also fine 😀

  3. I don't mean to point fingers, but note that your opponent went "offline" almost all the time after you made a move. Switching to another tab maybe? Anyhow at least very suspicious.

  4. shocked….but white got enough time to wrap the game before black came in action

  5. What a strange way to play. Your opponent had his priorities all wrong!

  6. 2600?? Inflated ratings on the site or what? I thought you were 2200ish?

  7. I play exactly like this, but I'm a 1000 Elo weaker XD

  8. At 5:30 I am considering ..a6, forcing an exchange. If the bishop retreats, it gets smothered by pawns.

  9. Amazing game Jerry, loved the video as always!

  10. god that was satisfying. He was so damn sure, and then, bang.

  11. If white plays e6, you can play Qd6 and then take it next move. Don't take the e6 pawn with your f pawn.

  12. If white plays e6, you can play Qd6 and then take it next move. Don't take the e6 pawn with your f pawn.

  13. your light square bishop looks very suspicious

  14. can any one tell me the name of the chess software which used in this video?

  15. At 6:55 can't black ignore the attack on the rook playing Ne3 for a fork in case the rook is captured?

  16. also, I have been getting a lot of compliments on my chessnetwork shirt

  17. Oh man, every experienced Caro-Kahn player knows, that on e6 you should reply with Qd6 🙂
    puhovik uses it with great success :D:D

    GG and thank you!

  18. that first dude was terrible. turned a winning and drawn position into a loss.

  19. I thought for a sec Caro-Kann was working. What do you call the black opening?

  20. You stuttered saying your name in the beginning a little xD

  21. Fantastic game!!! very instructive!

  22. impeccable defense! nice game jerry!

  23. got smashed by the Bayonet just recently – Bd7 seems like the way to go – also missed h5… thx, now i know…

  24. This is the first time I've seen your rating. I knew you were either IM, FM or GM standard, but to see it confirmed was enlightening. May I ask what was your highest ever rating Chess Network?

  25. Loved that game. White played good chess.

  26. Great game by black!Cooly played and won.

  27. dear sir: do you think that blizt and bullet is too fast? You don't really get to play the best chess, right? I think rapid is a nice compromise. There can be time to think and look and get a good move, but it isn't a six hour game.
    am I right?
