Tackling 1.e4 with 1...e5
The Petroff Defence is anything but dull. Although it is a frequent choice of top grandmasters, club players often fear that it leads to passive play. This book will debunk this prejudice and open new vistas.
A Vigorous Chess Opening Repertoire for Black
An Expert Repertoire for Black
In this book the reader will find an opening repertoire for Black against 1. e4, based on the Petroff Defence and designed to be used up to the highest level. For many years this opening has served as the main black weapon for chess giants as Vladimir Kramnik and Boris Gelfand.
The Petroff Defence is considered as one of Black's most reliable methods of meeting the king's pawn opening. By counterattacking as early as move two, Black avoid the hazards of having to face lines such as the Scotch Opening, the Italian Game and the "Spanish torture" of the Ruy Lopez. An early breach of a central file together with active piece play for both sides characterises the Petroff as a typical king's pawn opening.
