In this chess opening tutoriaI give you an introduction to the Petroff (Petrov) variation which arises after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6. White has two main moves available, to take the pawn on e5 or to play d4. I show you the typical positions that can develop in both lines and what structures you can expect. Enjoy watching!
