Sally Simpson: Hi John,
Thanks, I picked up that non Reti quote from somewhere.
Just did a trip on google to find out where it came from.
Me - Here, RHP and The Corner. A hat trick!
There is something here:
"Richard Reti therefore exhorted players to "castle because you must, not because you can".
And they probably got it from me :)
Maybe Reti was actually quoting Pillsbury in Modern Ideas, or Masters of the Chessboard. Looks like I have my reading material sorted out for work tomorrow.
I read a lot at work, I'm not meant to but I get bored.
Air traffic control pays well, but pilots get annoyed if your not paying 100% attention.
Anyway glad you spotted it and not Mr. Winter. I've had a couple of very polite emails from The Master pulling me up over certain things.
Thanks. So it was Pillsbury. The Austrian Morphy. ;)
