Russian defense The Russian defense is a classic chess opening. Comes from the moves: 1. e4 e5 2. Cf3 Cf6 It is also called Petrov or Petroff defense because it was analyzed in the nineteenth century by the Russian Aleksandr Petrov. The Russian defense is based on the idea of ​​not wasting time in defending the attacked e5 pawn, imitating White in development and counterattacking on the e4 pawn. In reality, after an eventual capture of the White (3. Cxe5), the Black does not proceed immediately to the capture of the pedestrian e4, but rather prefers first to remove the horse with 3. ... d6; only then does the temporarily transferred material resume. This has its reason in the fact that Black, since he always moves after his opponent, cannot imitate him indefinitely without falling behind: at some point. #chess #open game #Russian defense
