PETROFF DEFENCE - Steinitz Attack
(to) Steinitz / Modern Vars.

White's KKt and QP combined to attack Black's KP.
Black's King's Pawn removes White's QP on Q4(d4) immediately to simplify the position in the centre, and breaks symmetry (usually a good idea for the defender to do so at an early stage). B-Alt.
