Product Details

The great popularity of the Petroff Defence at the highest level has attracted general attention lately.  Many strong players employ this opening with great success and with both colors.  Unfortunately the opinion of the Petroff Defence as a sterile drawish opening seems to be firmly implanted in many minds.  The author tries to dispel these myths andpresents his understanding of the matter.  He examines the most popular lines and provides a large number of ideas that will enable you to play Petroff successfully, with either color.

Rustam Kasimdzhanov, Born in 1979 is a grandmaster from Uzbekistan and has for many years been known as a very strong and imaginative player.  However in 2004 Kasimdzhanov (pronounced "Kah-zeem-jha-nov") shocked the chess world by winning the FIDE world chess championship title, beating a string of world-class players like Ivanchuk, Grischuk, Topalov and Adams in the process.  Kasimdzhanov is a very deep player, who is able to explain chess ideas in an eloquent, lucid style, with a fine touch of humor.  His lessons are both entertaining and instructive -- perfect for students who seek to avoid dry theory.
