The Petrov Defense recently experienced a resurgence in popularity, played by many top players in elite tournaments (even up to the world championships!). Though it has a drawish reputation, it offers attacking opportunities for both sides. This defense is a solid option for black and will often surprise your opponents. Learn from Zoey how to play this opening as black, and how to play against it as white using model games from top players.
