What are the main points, tactical or otherwise, backing up the so-called Apocalypse Attack vs the Caro-Kann?
[Title "Caro-Kann Apocalypse Attack"] [fen "rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1"] 1. e4 c6 2. Nf3 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. Ne5!?
Is it an opening based on a few cheap tricks? And if so, what are these tricks?
There is a long article here
