  InspiredByMorphy: Kieseritsky plays the petroff well. Concentrated on development.
Feb-16-04  marcus13: Affirmative. A beautifull game for all Petroff lovers.
Dec-15-11  The Finisher: Really good attacking. Apart from moving his knight to safety and supporting the d-pawn with the bishop, he was all attack with just two clear developing moves: 9..c6 and 11..Nd7.

Black's development just came naturally. White's left home corner was terrible.

The way he finished off by clearing the f-file was bold, yet I felt he should have played Nd5 a move earlier.

The final move is a beauty and so is this game.
