The Réti Opening is justifiably named after Richard Réti, the great player, theoretician and leading light in the so-called “hypermodern” school. The original idea behind the Réti Opening still holds good today. White focuses on piece development and delays the establishment of a central structure until the early middlegame. If Black chooses to fill the void and occupy the centre (with pawns) early on then White will view this as a provocation and regard the black centre as a target to be undermined, attacked and finally detroyed.
The Move by Move series provides an ideal format for the keen chessplayer to improve their game. While reading you are continually challenged to answer probing questions – a method that greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of chess knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study chess while providing the best possible chance to retain what has been learnt.
