The Chessbase Petroff DVD By Kazimadov?
Has anyone seen this?
Is the emphasis for the Blackside or the White side or both, what sort of level is it aimed at?
Thanks for any feedback.

Avoiding the Petroff the Short style
In the current 2009 CorusB, we see Nigel Short avoiding the Petroff by transposing to the Four Knights. The first was a spectacular win against L'ami who, it was generally agreed, played badly. In R8,...

Petroff - fun out of 1.e4 e5
I have noticed a breed of players that play the Petroff and Slav as black. The only way to beat them is with black (they try to beat me and there lies my chance). With white is a nightmare.
