Chess nuts game analysis

REDHOTPAWN October 2011 Octet Tournament Reti Opening

My goal as white was to use the Reti Opening to limit black counterattack openings on a much stronger opponent.  My strategy was to complicate exchange options and introduce uncertainty by purposely using an unusual line of attack that might create an opportunity for white’s advantage.  Gaining advantage not by superior strength of forces but by deficiencies in black structure of forces.

Reti Opening after 22 moves by white

This game is available to view on with the game number is 8680552.  The analysis can be viewed from the “community” tab also on website.
Move 29 broke through to chase the black king away from supporting forces.
Reti Opening offers flexibility to strategic advantage, but typically requires patience on attack.
