It can be a big shock to established players when the suddenly find themselves up against players who are breaking through. On paper they are supposed to be hot favourites but this in itself can cause their demise. In playing ‘to win’ they will often go beyond the bounds of what is correct play and allow their young opponents the chances they relish.

Here’s a case in point with the then young Eric Lobron producing a shocking victory over Miguel Quinteros. Though in retrospect none of us are surprised.
