Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-16-09  YoungEd: I don't have a board in front of me, but it looks like White's 18. ♘b5 was the mistake here. Black doesn't fall for the trap 18. ...♗xb5 19 ♗xg4+, but instead just pushes the knight around and ends up with a better position. At the end, White is down a pawn with a lousy position, so resignation makes sense. Interesting to see Black win a Petroff miniature!
Jan-16-09  Ychromosome: If white tries to avoid the K and R skewer with 24.Rf1 then ...Bc3+ 25.Kc1 Rxe2
Jan-10-21  Granny O Doul: The US Junior Championship invites the top players under age 20 (not 18). In the game Finegold-Wolff from this tourney, White played the Bishop's opening to avoid Wolff's dreaded Petroff. Finegold asked after the game if Black can really hope to win in the queen trade variation, and Wolff said yes, citing exactly the line he played in this game.

And then he never played the Petroff again, as far as I can see.
