[November 09, 2017] Updated Opening Line by GM Bojan Vučković:
Caro-Kann Defense, incl. Gurgenidze System and Forgacs, Bronstein-Larsen & Karpov Variations

[Line 307 : 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3]

Line 307 covers the Gurgenidze System (3… g6), the Forgacs Variation (3… dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nf6 5. Nxf6+ exf6), the Bronstein-Larsen Variation (3… dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nxf6 5. Nxf6+ gxf6), and also a large part of the Karpov Variation (3… dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nd7) as the main line.

Each of the above mentioned variations has its followers, due to a wide variety of positional ideas based on different pawn structures.
