The Petroff Defence is considered as one of Black's most reliable methods of meeting the king's pawn opening. By counterattacking as early as move two, Black avoid the hazards of having to face lines such as the Scotch Opening, the Italian Game and the 'Spanish torture' of the Ruy Lopez. An early breach of a central file together with active piece play for both sides characterises the Petroff as a typical king's pawn opening. Until a few years ago, the Petroff was opening that was favoured by a few top Grandmasters, including Anatoly Karpov and Artur Yusupov. However, the last few years have seen a dramatic rise in its popularity, and it now provides battlefields for many top clashes of the modern elite players, including Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand, Leko, Topalov and England's Michael Adams. This is bound to have a positive effect on its popularity at club level. In this book, openings experts Alexander Raetsky and Maxim Chetverik study the typical plans and tactics for both White and Black in this complex opening. Using illustrative games, the authors provide up-to-date coverage of a line that has experienced a major overhaul in the last decade.This book is written by renowned opening theoreticians. It is ideal for club and tournament players. All main lines are also covered. It provides everything you need to know to play the opening with confidence.

This book is much more accessible and is a decent introduction to this under-rated defense. However, since it was published, interest in the Petroff at the highest level (thanks mainly to Kramnik) has caused the theory to advance significantly and many of the lines discussed in this book are already quite out-of-date. For white players, you can turn to 'Beating the Petroff" by Kotronias and Tzermiadianos for the explanatory prose and nearly ANY repertore book based around 1.e4 for white; most especially Khalifman series on Anand.
Unfortunately, no one has written a "Starting Out" or "Beginner's Guide" to the Petroff for the Black side. So, I'd recommend that you get this book and then look at recent annotated games of Kramnik and Gelfand to try to get more updated on the latest ideas.
By the way, there are also DVD's from Shirov and Kasimdzanov on the Petroff as well, though neither is from black's point-of-view. Basically white has several good resources and black has few. so, if you want to explore 2...Nf6 for black, this is probably you best starting point since it at least explains the basic ideas and the early evolution of theory. But you will still NEED to check the latest theory because you play the Petroff against strong opposition.
I hope this review has aided you, if it has, please rate accordingly.
My following comments arn't a review as such but more to to adress the complaints and offer advice about those people have complained in the reviews about the large amount of theory books on the Petroff have.
Learn a line against 3. Nxe5 indepth and I mean indepth. Don't try to learn all of them pick one and stick to it. I prefered a symetrical approach. You need to learn the theory to gain an advantage otherwise the symetrical nature will make it drawish if you don't know what your doing. It is for this reason if your just starting to play the Petroff play it against people rated higher than you lest you draw with weaker players.
In the mean time have a look at the novelty variation against d4 (on pg158)
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 Nxe4 4.Bd3 Nc6!?.
This novelty will be unexpected and take your opponent outside of opening preparation. Eventually I intend to play mainline against d4 but I'm still chewing through mainline 3. Nxe5 theory.
I reccomend learning the following lines before entering a tournament. This will prove to be more then sufficient
A. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 Nxe4 4. dxe5 theory. ( Surprisingly common at club level.)
B. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 B-b4 This variation white tries to escape to four knights territory. It is up to your taste weather you allow him to or not. I had this in my first tournament game with the Petroff. (I won!)
C. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.B-c4 The gambit line. You can transpose into the two knights defence or learn the theory and pawn snatch. Playing f6 is critical in many of those lines. pg 183
D. Learn a variation of the mainline 3. Nxe5 theory that suits your style. (In my case the symmetrical one)There is the line where white plays Qe2 early to get Queens off (pg 85). (This line is very drawish little real theory to learn) This is one reason I don't play this opening against players rated below me. (I like my Queen.)
E. The novelty line against 3. d4
When you look at it like this there isn't much theory to learn and you can cut out reading two thirds of the book. You then can play the opening in serious games. You should continually build on this gradually expanding your repertoire. Eventually phase out the novelty line otherwise it will lose its surprise value. Even if you play a line you aren't completely familiar with you still have decent chances because of the straight forward symetrical nature of the opening. Very simple opening to learn.
Enjoy playing the Petroff.
