    But white looks more developed to me at the conter though.

    black's active piece play gives equality

    I quite like chesshole's line. I have a line of the Petrov that I looked into after it featured in a 'Deathmatch' quite heavily.

    I always thought that White got really active pieces in exchange for the doubled pawns and is quite fun to play.

    Indeed. After the lemon 5.Bc4+? Black will of course reply 5...d5! 6.ed5 Bd6, and the game won't last long.

    Won't there be some endgames where black has to use 30-40 moves before the extra piece forces white to resign?

    no but the center requires maintainence and pushing for a win creates chances for black to play for a win as well

    its a dynamically equal position with chances for both sides to play for all results

    Wow guys that thread is awesome. I like to play the Petroff as black, those lines you post here are very informative and the explanations you give are easy to understand. Thanks for helping to understand the opening on a deeper level!

    well, i would not move 23 bxh5 without capturing c6 first, then i'd have two hanging pawns to target, h5 and a7 respectively. 2nd diagram on quote 21 eh

    ...you'd then have the pawn on g2 to defend, so would gain no advantage.
