Vishy WINS so easy with black against Kramnik, he is simply the best :)

Kramnik vs Anand, 2008

But yeah, Kramnik's Petroff will be a pain in the neck for Vishy as far as the upcoming match is concerned, no doubt about that

  acirce: <Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik played a Petroff with the fashionable 5.Nc3 line in the blindfold game with which they started. In the words of Kramnik, his opponent chose ‘a rather innocent line. For a while they followed a recent encounter between Karjakin and Gelfand, until Kramnik deviated with 15...Bf6 (Gelfand exchanged queens on d5). White kept a tiny plus, but Black’s counterplay with Ng7 and Re4 sufficed to equalize. On move 23 Anand offered a draw and after a brief thought Kramnik accepted, satisfied with the outcome. As he put it with a smile to the future: ‘If he wants to refute this line he’ll have to find something more serious.’ There was no post-mortem, but in the analysis room they together amicably looked at an endgame that John Nunn showed them.>
