Who is Reti to Fight for the d4 Square? by FM Dennis Monokroussos
When Black meets the Reti with 2…d4 3.e3 Nc6 a battle over the d4 square is in prospect. If White wins it, he’ll have an edge, but thanks to Black’s nice plan on moves 7-10 he won that battle instead. White was left with a hole on d4 and a backward pawn on d3, and Black did a great job of suffocating White’s position in the remaining moves, almost winning a miniature.
