Cyrus Lakdawala

The Petroff Defence (1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nf6;) is a solid and reliable way to meet 1.e4. It has a strong reputation and has been employed regularly by many grandmasters, most notably former world champions Anatoly Karpov and Vladimir Kramnik. By choosing counterattack instead of defence as early as the second move, Black immediately avoids many favourite weapons for White, including the Ruy Lopez, Italian Game, Scotch Game and a number of daunting gambits. This practical advantage for those playing Black in the Open Games cannot be underestimated.

In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in studying all the important lines in the Petroff, including the Cochrane Gambit, Main Line, Shirov Variation, Scotch Petroff and Three Knights Petroff . Using 48 illustrative games, with extensive commentary and quizzes, he explains the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing the Petroff Defence.

The Move by Move series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

* Essential guidance and training with the Petroff
* Provides repertoire options for Black
* Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study
