GM Davorin Kuljasevic’s “Develop Your Counter-intuitive Thinking!” - Violating general principles

Opening: B13, E41, D15, D85: CAro-Kann exchange variation, Nimzo-Indian, QGD Slav, Grunfeld

Player(s): Kramnik, Anand, Carlsen, Grischuk, Najdorf, Huebner, Tomashevsky, Fedoseev, Kuljasevic, Salgado

So far in this course, we have looked at specific ways in which we can make strong counter-intuitive decisions, such as those involving pawn structure, piece exchanges, king safety, tactical operations, etc. In this chapter, we will rather focus on more general principles that can be successfully 'violated.' In the five instructive examples that we will see, strong players have played the moves that may seem wrong on general grounds or even going against common sense. Yet, these moves were the best decisions in their respective positions. This teaches us that we should challenge even the most well-established assumptions in chess if we have a reasonable idea in mind.
