Reti French games

    On to a second page! Here's a very interesting one with attacks on opposite wings - my attack just happened to be more incisive!

    Here's a cool one where I was completely winning and then just blundered checkmate at the end due to a distraction lol.

    My best game in a bad day of blitz yesterday! Admittedly some strange moves from my opponent.

    Waller, thanks for sharing all this examples, it opened up my eyes! I am not afraid of french defense anymore, actually I wanted my opponents to play it against me now ;) I have a friend which used to beat me easily with his frech defense and yesterday you should have seeing him rolling up his eyes when I pulled this weapon out :) It was a 5min game and unkown waters for him. Thanks a lot for your blog!

    Yeah, I know it's been a while, but these games were a lot of fun to go through.  I think I'll have a new try that's not my standard boring french lines.

    These are a joy to watch. I too struggle to gain an advantage with the Tarrasch but this system looks more to my style. Thanks for the heads up.

     Great to see the Reti has found some more followers! 

    Just thought I'd update this thread again - I brought out the Reti in an OTB tournament last month against high-level opposition. I did go for a more positional game this time (just my mood at the time) but still came out with the better side of a draw. Here's the game (note that 192 ~ 2150/2200 in FIDE).
