    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
