Why Was This Course Created?

In 1924, Capablanca was considered unbeatable in the chess world, winning even the strongest tournaments by big margins with a 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 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…

The crowd smirked and whispered their criticisms until they saw the greatest player in history ―a.k.a. “the chess machine”― being crushed and resigning 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.

Legends like Vladimir Kramnik became world champion playing 1.Nf3 alone for decades.

To know an opening is good… To learn a trap might be useful… But to master a system is so much better!

A system is something more powerful and widely applicable than an opening.

The Reti Opening System is a solid and deadly weapon used by top players!

3 marvelous ideas and plans you can learn:

A Kingside Pawn-Storm that STUNS Black and DESTROYS His Position

Just when Black thinks his position is solid with his bishop outside the pawn chain…

You play g4! and h4! with a FORCED attack on the kingside he could never have expected!

SLICE His Position with Two Bishops in the …Bf5 Line

Often Black will try a crude attack with …Bf5 and …Qc8/d7 aiming for …Bh3!

You’ll discover a simple way to nip this in the bud and emerge with a crushing positional advantage thanks to your bishop pair!

A “Bolt from the Blue” Piece Sac that Devastates the …dxc4 Line

Black grabs a pawn and tries to hold it… What do you do?

You use the author’s stunning Nac4!! Just throw your knight into the fire!

This shocking (and easily winning) response is revealed to you in the course!

This course is full of this type of striking ideas to make the Reti your main weapon!
