Richard Reti

Masters of the Chessboard discusses the playing styles of each of the leading Grandmasters of history, up until 1933, when it was first published. The book is packed with advice, even for beginners. Opening theory is a priority. Reti tells the student to understand "the basic idea" of each opening, and goes into considerable detail as he explains each of the popular lines of the day, including, of course, his own Reti Opening.

Some of the finest parts of the book are the mini-essays, most of them on openings, but also on rook endgames. It is remarkable that Reti manages to do this without going into long variations. This practical approach is also evident when he deals with positional themes. For example, Masters can be appreciated as almost a primer on the subject of how to turn the two bishops into a significant advantage.

As noted by American Grandmaster Andy Soltis in his foreword, the entire book is "wonderfully instructive." And now it is available in a 21st-century edition, with figurine algebraic notation, with many diagrams and photos added.

Richard Reti was one of the strongest and most original players of all time. He defeated Capablanca, Alekhine, Euwe, Rubinstein, Bogoljubov and Tartakower in tournament games. He invented new and successful opening systems and brilliant endgame studies. He was also a gifted and entertaining writer.

Published 2012, softback, 216 pages.
