    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

    the reason I love this is to avoid some e4 defenses,namely e5....I hate playing against it.

    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.
