Naturally I'm assuming that, given Al's often high-handed and preemptory tone, he's generally right in his pronouncements...although his judgments about openings do at times tend toward the silly. But anyway, a number of marvelous and instructive games, with an astonishing amount of Retis and Pircs (we even see Capablanca play 1...g6 at one point!).
