    Too bad that 9...0-0 spoils all the fun, as you have correctly indicated.

    So far there is just one (short) correspondence game played, which can hardly be called inspiring for White.

    Why to we single out poor Petrov?  Why not Kasparoff and Karpoff etc.?  Undecided

    Is it the Petroff's defense, Petrov's defense or simply the Russian game? Answer is it is called by all three. Named after Alexander Petrov a Russian chess player from the mid 19th century. Petroff is simply an anglized spelling of Petrov which the English and Americans have a tendency to do to foreign sounding names to them.

    weamy, after 4. Qf3+ the black king can't relly go anywhere useful, i wish i knew how to put the board and all variations (i am no computer wiz) but again i think it's straightfoward, a few examples besides the queen blockwhich fails quickly, would be 4...Ke7?? loses the the queen to a bishop check, and 4...Ke8 and the white Queen will threaten b7 and the a8-Rook if d pawn ever moves. let me know if i am wrong, and 4Qf3+ isn't good for white, because as i said i have no engine to work on this just my brain, and we all know sometimes staring at chessboards can turn that bio-computer into pudding!

    i do not have an "engine" to look at this weamy, but before your move 4.Nxb5 did you look at Qf3+, i think this is pretty straightfoward and covers the Qa5+ line where the N block fails to a d4 push. after 4.Qf3+ where does the black king go that doesn't give white time to prepare for this? it can't be blocked by black's Queen, because the trade happens with check, and the Bishop drops. the black king on g8 seems ridiculous, mating threats on taking d5

    How about that ...Bxe6 I don't see any more attack for white. then black could play Nd7-f8-g6

    "Well he shouldn't have played the Petroff anyway.  That's the moral of the story."
