Jul-01-04  Morty: People shouldn't play the Petroff if they don't understand it. It can lead to some pretty sharp lines. I must say, though, white had some good ideas in this game.

  benveniste: Black's mistake is simple greed. Instead of 7 ... dxe5, a simple 7 ... Qf6 holds things together for black.

This is consistent with my instinct that 4.Bxf7+ just *can't* be a forced win of and by itself.

I would say it's a forced loss.

  sea7kenp: I see another alternative for Black: 5 ... Ke8. No Mate threat here. And, unlike the original Petroff trap, Black has a Bishop for a Pawn so, instead of losing material, might be giving some back.
