    The Reti - A Flexible Attacking Opening - Alejandro Ramirez
    Catalog Code: WIN0391CB

    The Nimzo-Indian, the Gruenfeld and the King’s Indian Defence are three incredibly uncomfortable defences to meet.

White steers away from mainstream theory while still being on the aggressive side and causing Black problems from the beginning.
