Boring Basic Positions

How many times have you came to a symetrical positions shuch as the four knights. (see below)

Symetrical positiong often ouccur in the Italian game. Above you see what happens to me in the Petroffs. Not to metion that I play the Italian Game. Now in the petroffs I do not want to play d6 and go in to a Philliodors. If someone has a way to get out of this please let me know. Help is greatly appreciated.

    This is a common theme in the Spanish Game, but any opponent interested in creating symmetrical positions will probably not be quick to play 3.Bb5 after 2...Nc6.

    Put your other bishop on a long diagonal and White will be out of his preparation: b6 and Bb7, or if White has already played Bb5, then a6 Ba4 b5 Bb3 Bb7.
