|Nov-19-03|| ||S4NKT: This is the only game on chessgames.com which Réti plays that employs the Réti system, so why is it called the Réti system..? |
|Nov-19-03|| ||AdrianP: Reti from the 1920s onwards almost always opened 1. Nf3... It's that move which became associated with his name (it was fairly unusual). The majority of lines transpose into, e.g. Queen's Gambit lines etc. The response 1. ...Nf6 does not, invariably, so is labelled as the Reti system. |
|Jul-31-04|| ||RonB52734: There are now a number of Reti Reti games in the database. See http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches.... But this is still one of the earliest. Interestingly, there are still no examples of Ruy Lopez playing the Ruy Lopez, nor (clear examples, anyway) of Philidor playing the Philidor. |

|Aug-02-04|| ||chessgames.com: To futher confuse matters, the software we use that detects openings is very poor at identifying Reti games from Queen's pawn openings, King's Indian Attacks, English opening, etc. |
|Aug-07-04|| ||RonB52734: Upon reading the reply of <chessgames.com> to my comments, I took the opportunity to read <chessgames.com>'s profile, thence to look at "his"* game collections, and found myself reading the kibitzes to the game Kasparov vs Sting, 2000. So this is as good a place as any to commend <chessgames.com> for the website. Truly a work to be proud of.|
* = and noting how <chessgames.com> gushes over the photo of Sting, one suspects that <chessgames.com> might be a lady?
