I want to work the Petroff defence.

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.

'Fight 1.e4 like Caruana' Petroff repertoire
Anyone checked this repertoire from IM Christof Sielecki aka Chessexplained? It's a complete 1.e4 e5 repertoire based on the lines Caruana plays. It is on Chessable.
What's your opinion on it?

Does this get white anywhere? I used to play this but after getting nowhere in several lines I switch to 3.d4 lines where I grab a pawn for the bishop pair. Recently however, I read of the idea of cas...

3. d4  Petroff- why is this not so popular?
Recent books such as "Beating the Petroff" do not deal with 3. d4 Ne4 4. Bd3 d5 5. Ne5. Why do top players seldom play this?
