 Post subject: Opening Repertoire 1. Nf3
PostPosted: Sun Oct 14, 2007 4:10 am 
I'm starting to build my opening repertoire using 1. Nf3 and looking for any suggestions. I would like to stick with a Reti type opening after 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4.

Are there any good books on 1. Nf3?

Are there any good Web Sites I can use to learn Hypermodern Openings?

I looked at "The Dynamic Reti" by Nigel Davies but he recommends 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 dxc4 3. e4!? I'm not sure I like this way to play so I'm a little concerned about Buying this book.

I would recommend "Hypermodern Opening Repertoire for White", by Eric Schiller. It has lots of good explanations and numerous complete games.

He recommends 1 Nf3, which will usually evolve into either a Reti or an English Opening.

After 1 Nf3 d5 2 c4 dc, Schiller advocates 3 Na3, I believe.

Well along with the Schiller book I like Dunnington's easy guide to the Reti Opening. He recommends 3 Na3 (60%) as well and 3 Qa4 (57%) as an option. I think Donaldson in A Strategic Opening Repertoire recommends 3 e3 which scores (61%) in 450 games in ChessAssistant.

Have fun, AJ

As I recall, Donaldson doesn't like 3 Na3 because of 3...a6.

You could try Nimzovich's Chess Praxis.

http://www.chesscentral.com/Chess-Praxi ... 453206.htm

He opened a lot of games with 1. Nf3, following it up with a queenside fianchetto or transposing to the English depending on what Black played.. you may find his discussion of "alternating strategy applied to the opening" interesting.

AND/OR

There is Modern Ideas in Chess by Reti himself.

http://www.chesscentral.com/Modern-Idea ... 607832.htm

All you need to view this is ChessBase Lite or any other program that views ChessBase files.
