GM Petrov: Surprise Repertoire for Black after 1.e4 e5, 2.Nf3 - Introduction

Opening: :


When, as Black, you face 2.Nf3 after 1.e4 e5, it's almost instinctive to go for a Ruy Lopez, or the often played Italian Game. What about surprising your opponent with a not-so-famous line after White's 2.Nf3? Studying lines that throw your opponent off the well-known theory can be a powerful weapon in Blitz and Rapid games, but, sometimes, even in classical chess! 
This course will give you some ideas on how to surprise your opponents with a curious opening. You will see many rare lines. Some are very good for rapid or blitz and are playable even in classical games.  Black can defend his pawn with the Queen from both f6 and e7. Those moves have different ideas, though. He can even try to take the initiative by playing d5 or f5. We will see a few different variations with the f5 plan. Then we have a Philidor defense and some topical gambits.
