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.
This is really the Reti Opening and the 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 is the Reti Gambit. I'm a fan of Reti and I find this offensive.
ISNT THIS RETI OPENING
When did the Reti opening become the Zukertort opening? Why?
PS, does anyone else think that chess, as a sport, needs a stronger naming convention for its openings?
King's Indian Attack is very fun and easy to learn
Could be hypermodern play depending on how white chooses to play in subsequential moves.
The only downside to 1. Nf3 is that Black has considerable latitude in his response. He can also play 1. .. Nf6 for psychological effect at no cost.
In Chess there is so much to know!
This is know as the Reti Opening, it is one of the top four popular openings. It is good.
