    Wow, I've had this played against me, and who knew there could be a deep strategic idea behind it.  Applicable to some other positions too it seems.

     

    Now if only I can get a fully systematic way of making safe moves w/o blundering, then I could implement this kind of strategy.

    Exellent lecture.  I have messed around a few times with this opening as white in blitz when I didn't feel like getting into my oppenent's superior Petroff knowledge.   And of course, I was playing it completely wrong, thinking since the enemy king is exposed and being down material, I needed to attack like a madman.   This lecture fixed all these problems ... outstanding.

    IM Pruess is a good teacher.  Take his lecture more seriously guys.

    You might be the victim of the next Cochrane gambit.

    Great video! I found it of great interest, as I have a thread running right now titled "who's winning". The question is asked: In this position, who's winning? You gave me great ideas on how to assess the value of pawns and pieces in a simple to understand mathematical way. This method of assessment you use will help me in evaluating positions in the future diagrams that I post. Perhaps I will also be making better decisions when playing chess. Thank you! Smile

    Weird moves. Next time please talk about more moves and why didn't you explain about all the good moves. And why play g4??! Are you white or black?
