Fun with Reti

A popular opening, the Reti offers White great flexibility and can transpose into numerous other openings, including the English, Kings Indian and the normal Kings Pawn game.

If the book lines are followed, White can have a strong push for the centre, with a Knight and its Queen developed in attack, before Black can bring its pieces into play.
