Blitz chess (also known as speed or fast chess) is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than normal tournament time controls allow. Openings, tactics and strategy are same.

The Caro-Kann Defense is a popular chess opening for Black and enjoys the reputation of being one of the most solid responses to 1.e4.

It has also been a favorite opening of World Champions throughout history such as Capablanca, Botvinnik, Petrosian and Karpov, and has seen steady growth in popularity in recent years, played by modern Super-GMs such as Anand, Adams, and Leko.

The opening has been a guest at several World Chess Championship Matches throughout history, including, for instance, the match between Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov in 1987, the match between Vladimir Kramnik and Peter Leko in 2004, and the match between Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen in 2013.

The Caro-Kann belongs to the group of semi-open chess openings for Black and occurs after the moves 1.e4 c6 (see the position on the right).

The opening was named in honor of two strong players from Germany, Horatio Caro and Marcus Kann, who contributed many ideas to the development of this opening at the end of the 19th century.
