  Eric Schiller: <tim> Note the date. It was a scholastic tournament. I was just 15, and my opponent was a beginner. It wasn't even original, just an opening trap.

  FSR: 7.Nd5! was much better.
Mar-31-11  jbtigerwolf: That Petrov is just too good for Black; it only seems to give Black stuff or lead to a draw. My experiences with it (both sides!) I've been stuffed early or it's ended a dull draw, albeit only after around 35 moves, but still very drawish. I guess if you can't break through initially it becomes rows of pawns that are hard to get through.

Apr-01-20  scormus: when I was at school it was common practice among the better players when needing a quick win as B against a beginner, to play Petrov. For sure they'll give you 1 e4 and 2 Nf3. Odds on they'll either fall into this trap, or lose the N
Apr-01-20  Granny O Doul: Was this the High School of the Steinitz Attack against the Petroff Defense? Any other school they'll usually take on e5 and when the knight is attacked, retreat it.
