Réti opening

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Réti opening (or just "the Réti") is a hypermodern chess opening. It starts with 1.Nf3. It was originally devised for sequences like

1.Nf3 d5
2.c4 d4

Now 2.g3 is as usual as 2.c4 in this opening. The opening can change into many others as pieces develop. This is called transposition.
