This is a quick guide to a video series. This series shows a few different ideas that white can use to play against the Petroff, including the under-investigated Cochrane Gambit. Clearly it would not be a bad idea for a black player of the Petroff to also be familiar with these ideas. Most of the videos are best for 1400-2200 players.
