Basic opening principles illustrated in a duel of generations


I cannot hide that one of my favourite themes as a player, trainer and chess writer refers to the priorities regarding the development. Sometimes, I am a bit unsure whether this classical issue maintains its instructional character nowadays. After all, the intensive use of computers ensure a minimum of playing accuracy, at least in the first part of the game (although it must be said that computers do not explain on general grounds why a move is good according to them!). However, recent events involving a hard battle between generations, entirely justify the signal alarms I had drawn on that occasion.
