I don't care WHAT kind of opening it is - if it looks like I';m gonna lose, I thrash the pieces off the board with my jumper . . . hah
It isn't mega-ultra-super-"I'll always win" effective, although it is a great way to annoy the hell out of your opponents.
Well, I play Reti but Nf3 can transpose into other openings even after white plays 2. C4.
Now, Zukertort opening, Basman defence is 1. Nf3 h6 and then black plays g5. Perhaps that is the reason for this title. BTW it is not good to continue with pure Reti after h6. One should rather play e4.
I did not read any book where Nf3 is described as specific opening by this first move because of transpositions eg. English etc.
When ever one of my friends plays white, he always plays this. So annoying!
this is the reti and it is very well rounded to transpose into a queens pawn structure or the kings indian attack or sometimes you push e4 leave that night and that pawn there as long as you can to attack the center
isnt this the reti
In Zukertort opening I'm playing that:
the reason I love this is to avoid some e4 defenses,namely e5....I hate playing against it.
i want an opening for white thats aggressive
Gm_andrewfeng that is the Four Knights Game.
a person who plays the reti isssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss MAD
i hate the reti
Why are the comments on these pages reversed chronologically?
this is chess
From anunaki's comment on the previous page:
"For people saying this is the Reti - this is the Zukertort, the Reti is the fully hypermodern system of 1. Nf3 2.c4, once you play c4 it is the Reti. The main line is: 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4
"This is the first move typically of the Reti opening, since 1. c4 is typically called the English, so people do often call Nf3 the Reti, but it is a slight misnomer."
...Clarifying, but I still say we need a stronger convention.
