reti opening ratkovicIM Milovan Ratkovic reveals a complete system for White with the Reti Opening, allowing you to play simple move-orders and get great positions no matter what Black does.

In 1924 Capablanca was considered unbeatable in the chess world…

Winning even the strongest tournaments by big margins with superbly clear and overwhelmingly strong play.

But along came Round 5 of the New York tournament where he faced Czech legend Richard Reti as black.

Violating the traditional chess opening principles of the time, Reti played 1.Nf3 and then 2.c4, fianchettoed both bishops and sought to control the center from a distance.

Was he mad?

He was facing the greatest player in history after all… the “chess machine”!

The crowd smirked and whispered their criticisms until they saw the final outcome fast approaching.

Capablanca was crushed and resigned on just his 31st move.

And thus was born the Reti Opening.

Nowadays we know that this opening is a deadly weapon for those who HATE theory and LOVE dynamic positional chess without memorization of sharp lines.

And now it is your turn.
