PETROFF DEFENCE PDF

Complete Repertoire for White against Petroff Defence. In his first database for Modern Chess , GM Alexander Colovic has a hard task to provide a complete repertoire against the super solid Petroff Defence. Together with Berlin Defence, nowadays it constitutes a major theoretical problem - not to obtain an advantage against it, but to obtain a playable position! As modern theory has shown, the best method to approach it is to have a lot of ideas. The point is to be versatile and flexible, to avoid being a sitting duck in the opening and by being hard to pin down to pose practical problems in the opening. With these thoughts in mind, let's see if we can find a few promising ideas in the Petroff!

In practice White is usually able to achieve this, but at some structural cost such as having to play c4, which balances out. Qe2 Qe7 6. This is generally only good enough for a draw , which Black should be satisfied with.

Another possibility, explored by Keres , is 5. A completely different approach is to meet Nxe4 with 5. Nc3 Nxc3 6. For instance, White can plan a quick Be3, Qd2, and , and play for a kingside attack, trusting that his doubled c-pawns will help protect his king, and that his initiative and attacking potential will offset the long term disadvantage of having doubled pawns.

The Petroff: dependable or dangerous?

In recent years, the Petroff has built a reputation for itself of being a very reliable opening choice. Veterans like Mickey Adams and Vladimir Kramnik favour it too. And lately, even the world championship challenger, Fabiano Caruana, has been seen deploying the Petroff quite successfully. The pair's meeting in the Sinquefield Cup gave us a prelude of what the Petroff might bring to the table if Caruana decides to stick to it in the match for the title. Just one round before this matchup, Caruana had raced past his rivals, beating Sergey Karjakin.
