New: Victor Bologan - Reti - a Repertoire for White

by ChessBase
6/28/2017 – What to play with White? How about 1.Nf3? With this move White can steer the game into the positions he likes and Black has to be careful not to get wrong-footed. Moreover, 1.Nf3 is also objectively strong and has been played by numerous top-players and World Champions. Victor Bologan recommends a repertoire.

Victor Bologan explains why he likes 1.Sf3:

"It is always fascinating when you, preparing for the game or checking an opening line, meet games dated from the beginning of the last century or even from the 1800s. Working on the DVD, I realized that the development of the knight to f3, followed by the attack on the centre with c4, was played by almost all great champions of the past.

The most valuable investment into this opening was of course made by Richard Reti, who scored a couple of victories with it in the 1920s, but what would it look like without Capablanca’s games or Smyslov’s fine ideas? Nowadays the main protagonist of 1.Nf3 with White is Vladimir Kramnik, who has in my opinion the deepest strategical knowledge and understanding in chess.

Especially the Reti is designed for those players who like strategy, manoeuvres and plans. Who like to avoid opening tons of theory, the jungle of forced lines. In this DVD, I tried to deal with all possible Black reactions against 1.Nf3. Naturally, there is much theory left outside of it, but a repertoire for White for sure is inside. Enjoy!"
