Hello everybody, well i would just like to say that well 1 Nf3. is very transpositional move. I employ this alot and found that against 1 NF3 d5 2 D4. Is a very strong response. Just ask Kramnik! And also a very natural way to transpose into would be the english defense.

Hi all i'm looking for the name of this variation :
1. Nf3 d5
2. d4 Nf6
3. g3 c5
4. Bg2 Nc6
5. b3 ?!

The idea is to play : Bb2 Nd2 Rc1 0-0 and likely Re1 and delay c4 or e4

1. Nf3 d5
2. g3 --- Is the Reti Opening



Quote:
The position after 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 is shown in the diagram. Instead of 2.g3, White's most popular responses are 2.d4 and 2.c4, but we'll continue to ignore these moves since they transpose into openings which are not key to the Reti.
After 2.g3, Black can take different directions. Since it's impossible to flag all of the various transpositions in the space we have, we'll leave it up to you to spot them. The first thing to watch is the development of the four Bishops.

2...d5 Here we consider variations where Black develops the Bf8 on the a3-f8 diagonal, usually to e7. After the natural 3.Bg2, the most popular move is 3...c6, creating a b7-c6-d5 Pawn chain to reduce the effectiveness of the Bg2. After 4.O-O, Black plays 4...Bg4 (or 4...Bf5), to develop the Nb8 on the next move: 5.d3 Nbd7. White has a King's Indian formation, the first five moves played without paying attention to Black's moves. Black has not committed the development of the Bf8. • Both players have options. White could have played 4.c4 or 4.b3. Black could have played 3...e6, 3...c5, 3...Bf5, or 3...Bg4.


Black can imitate White's development with 2...g6. A likely continuation is then 3.Bg2 Bg7 4.O-O O-O. Now if 5.d3 d6, the position is symmetric. White can break the symmetry with 3.c4, 3.b3, or 3.b4.


Black can also try 2...b6 (or even 2...b5) 3.Bg2 Bb7 4.O-O and now 4...e6.


2...c5 avoids the Sicilian which would have been possible if played on the first move.
