Improve Your Chess: Highly Instructive Games - Reti-Becker 1923

Opening: A33: Symmetric English

Player(s): Reti, Becker


NM Dan Heisman selects for you highly instructive games, that will help you improve your game! In this new series, Dan analyzes famous and not-so-famous games that he thinks will give you a tool to get to the next level.

Today show: Reti and Becker turn a "Reti Opening" (1.Nf3) into a Symmetric English.  Reti delays castling and, when Becker plays passively, launches a "Dragon-type" kingside attack. First Reti soundly sacrifices a pawn but he makes several inaccurate moves, allowing Becker chances to not only equalize, but even obtain a superior position. Reti ends up sacrificing multiple pawns, but wins a piece when Becker miscalculates in complications. At one point Becker has six pawns for a piece but Reti has open lines and a winning position. Reti then misplays the attack, allowing Becker possible equality and more, when Becker makes a disastrous king move, finally succumbing to the kingside attack.
