The Caro-Kann Defense is a common chess opening characterized by the moves 1.e4 c6 (see algebraic notation). The usual continuation is 2.d4 d5, followed by 3.Nc3, 3.Nd2, 3.exd5, or 3.e5 (the Advance variation.) The Caro-Kann is similar to the Sicilian Defense and French Defense in that it is half-open, but is thought to be more passive and drawish than either of the above openings.
