Apr-06-08  Knight13: Black should definitely play on and try 26. d5. I bet black's slightly better after that move at least.

  offramp: Peter Clarke in the BCM writes that this was the first ever Petroff in a World Championship. Can that be true?
Sep-05-15  Retireborn: I believe so, yes. Pillsbury and Marshall were the earliest advocates of the Petroff, but there was no Lasker-Pillsbury match, and for his 1907 match Marshall had evidently put his faith in the French.

Probably it would have turned up in the Botvinnik-Smyslov series if Botvinnik had been a 1.e4 player.

Sep-05-15  RookFile: Perfectly strong defense, appropriate for all levels of play. Black doesn't make a lot of weaknesses in his position.
