Modern ideas in Chess" is a very short book - too short, I think, but I include it in my "Best Chess books" list

Modern ideas in Chess" is a very short book - too short, I think, but I include it in my "Best Chess books" list. Far from being just a technical or tactical book (you have hundreds like these), it demonstrates the changing concepts of chess. Richard Reti - one of the leaders of the hypermodern school of chess which rose to prominence in the 1920's - was a formidable over the board grandmaster as shown by his victories at the splendid tournaments of Kaschau 1918, Gothenburg 1920 and Teplitz Schonau 1922. His victims included Capablanca, Alekhine and Nimzowitsch, while his elegant destruction of Bogolyubov deservedly won the beauty prize at New York 1924.

This book, from an experienced author and strong grandmaster provides a solution. Based around the moves: . f3 d5 . 4, Delchev provides original analysis, his own as well as computer generated, and up to date game references from 2011 c6 and . .The book is divided into 8 sections, each of which is subdivided into a main ideas section, a step-by step theory section and finally some complete illustrative games dc and .

American modernist design and architecture enabled people to lead a modern life. There is no single date for the beginning of the modern era in America, as dozens of painters were active at the beginning of the 20th century. the car became popular and affordable for many, leisure time and entertainment gained importance and the job market opened up for women. It was the time when the first cubist landscapes, still-life and portraits appeared; bright colors entered the palettes of painters, and the first non-objective paintings were displayed in the galleries.

This book aims to offer an active Black repertoire against The Eng­ lish Opening . 4, the Reti . tlf3, and their siblings that arise after . 3. More importantly, we try to offer not only variations, but also a philosophy of how to treat such openings. g2 d5 . 3 ltlf6 . tlf3 . 6 . -0 0-0

Are there any books or set of books that have a repertoire approach to this where they cover most of the responses? I’ve heard the Modern Reti: Anti-Slav Repertoire is good but it lacks responses to the KID, c5, and Grunfeld so I’m also looking for something to fill in those holes.

There is another gushy review of this book. Readers need to be aware of a few points. There are formatting issues, and this book cannot be regarded even as a complete repertoire.

With respect to formatting: at various points in the book, you will find yourself looking at a new paragraph that starts, e.g., "6. Be3! This move solves White's problems." Except that you will be scratching your head, asking yourself which was Black's last 5th move, because the previous paragraph left off with White's 13th. You will trace back, and eventually figure out that this paragraph is giving the correct response to a Black option two paragraphs ago. Repeat: you WILL eventually figure this out. But the formatting of the book does a great deal to reduce clarity. It's called boldface, people. Put your main line moves in boldface, and the reader can ALWAYS tell what your main move is, and where the line picks up after your digressions.

With respect to completeness: I must admit that I was dismayed within the first two pages. We're dealing with the Anti-QGA here, 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 dxc4 3. e3 Nc6 4. Bxc4 e5 5. d4 exd4, where the author gives 6. 0-0! as White's correct continuation. He analyzes Black's 5. ...e4 (instead of ...exd4), a place where the formatting problems mentioned above rear their ugly head. However, after 6. 0-0 nowhere does he mention the most obvious move for Black, which is 6. ...dxe3. I would advise the ambitious player of the White pieces to put in a little work on this line with your favorite chess engine, because I have not found any database games that really shine for White in this line, while the correct approach for the first player is not at all easy to find. I'll give you a hint: it involves an interesting exchange sacrifice.

Both the formatting problem and the completeness problem surface elsewhere in the book.

However, if you get past these, the content is still very good. The author is enthusiastic, and this enthusiasm has translated into a great deal of original analysis, with many recommendations for remarkably interesting lines. In particular, if you want to play the Reti, you simply have to read his chapter on the reversed Benoni, which I agree is Black's best try, and where White is still struggling to prove anything but equality.

Put all together, it averages out to four stars. It's not a cookbook, not complete, but definitely helpful. Be prepared to supplement the author's work and write pages of notes yourself, but in the end you can have yourself a nice little repertoire here.

There are many different types of opening books. One is the venerable BCO/NCO/MCO, a massive tome of short lines that very briefly sketch out every opening you could possibly imagine. Despite the massive waste of space for any given player, we've all used this type of book at one time or another. Just a quick glance over some obscure line before your 4th round game (because your buddy told you that your opponent might play the Grob), and your confidence is instantly renewed!

Another is the all popular "instant repetoire in a can". You pop out the book, work with it for an hour and behold! - a one size fits all opening repetoire from one or both sides of the board. These books tend to be extremely user friendly - easy on hard analysis with a focus on systematic replies and broad strategic strokes. An excellent example of this is John Watson's A Strategic Chess Opening Repetoire for White - though it features excellent analysis, there's a focus on user friendly understanding and keeping plans within easily described and understood schemes.

Another sort of opening tome is a book covering a specific opening. One example of this is John Emms' The Nimzo-Indian: Move by Move. It's an extremely user friendly book, but can go into the sort of analytical specificity that a general openings text could not because of its generalist nature. Another book in this category is The Modern Reti: An Anti-Slav Repetoire, by Alexander Delchev.

I felt the need to contrast The Modern Reti against other opening book choices because this book strikes me as unique in my experiences with opening texts. This is, by far, THE most analytically rich opening text that I've ever read.

To begin, however, this book covers 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4. For anyone expecting a book in the 2nd class that I mentioned (a repetoire in a can), you will be disappointed. This does not provide a solution against, say, a KID setup from Black. In other words, you could (theoretically, though unlikely) NEVER use the analysis in this book if you never face someone who plays 1...d5 against 1. Nf3. Again, this is why I felt the need to contrast this book against even an opening specific text like John Emms' Nimzo-Indian effort - this almost feels like a 4th class, an opening work on a sub-opening that is part of a larger opening scheme (for instance, part of the English Opening, if you choose to transpose to that). If you have a limited chess budget, you might want to look for a book that covers a more broad portion of your repetoire.

The analytical quality of this book, however, is absolutely beyond reproach. It's easy to tell if a chess author is just regurgitating old games to be able to toss out a quick book on an opening - here, however, Delchev has done an incredible job. Virtually all of the games listed are from within the past 10 years, and many are only within the past 1-2 years. And it's very easy to understand why - Delchev has recommended some brand new and razor sharp continuations that ONLY have data from the past 10 years. In many instances Delchev has provided original analysis of his own to supplement the still meager practical work within his suggestions. The lines are given in a detail that I've never seen surpassed in any opening text - you can really feel that some serious effort has been put into producing a thorough product. Delchev is also unfailingly honest and objective about his suggestions. He readily admits that some of his suggestions don't necessarily lead to an advantage, but merely extremely interesting positions where your superior knowledge will (most likely) prove decisive.

Despite the sterling quality of the book's analysis, I have two caveats. First - this book is HARD WORK. You will be pushing through quite a few complicated lines, and quite often Delchev assumes a certain level of tactical competency when deciding to end a line of analysis. Delchev doesn't give word commentary on every line or move, often giving just a += or "with an initiative" for alternative lines. You won't have a lot of guidance while pushing through this dense thicket of analysis, and I can easily imagine even A players (1800-1999) getting lost in places. You might want to consider that this book would be above your head before purchasing it - or at least have an engine running on a computer near you while going over the lines. Secondly, some of the suggestions are murderously aggressive and tactical in nature. For instance, his suggestion after 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 d4 is 3. b4 f6 4. e3 e5 5. c5 a5 6. Bb5+ c6 7. Bc4. This line features White usually sacrificing a pawn or two in an attempt to rip through Black's central pawn cover for a huge attack. Another example is 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 c6 3. e3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. b3 Nbd7 6. Qc2 Bd6 7. Bb2 0-0 8. Rg1!?, with ideas of g4 and a do or die kingside attack. This is definitely not your granddad's Reti! If you are playing 1. Nf3 with the idea of only playing quiet fianchetto lines and strategic play similar to the English Opening, this book is not going to satisfy you. Delchev goes straight for the gasoline and matches with most of his suggestions.

Delchev's writing is straightforward and, while fairly terse, is instructive. His writing is obviously translated to English, but the translation isn't awkward. Although there are a few errors, they don't impact the flow of the book or the instruction value. Delchev is even fairly humorous at times - one line that actually made me laugh out loud was, "It looks like White's pieces are hanging, but the force (meaning the tactics!) are with him." For a chess book, that's pretty good! Every chapter begins with a preview of the lines to be covered that includes a verbal summary of the important points. These verbal summaries are quite nice, and help sum up some of the key ideas in the slew of tactics you'll be dealing with. Every chapter ends with a presentation of practical games with more analysis.

In short, this book details an insanely aggressive version of the Reti that requires a lot of hard work and tactical vigilance. If you possess the tactical chops and want to put the work in, this will be one of the best books you've ever read, and you'll probably score a lot of free points just from having the ideas on board. Below a certain level of tactical competency, though, this book might just be confusing. Delchev doesn't provide guidance for every line, and sometimes ends a line 1-2 moves before things are truly clear. This is also quite a bit of work for a very small slice of your repetoire - folks limited in time or budget might want to look into a more broad opening book. If you're willing to roll up your sleeves, though, you will feel incredibly rewarded with every bit of effort.

Four of five stars.
