Description

Richard Réti (1889-1929) was one of the best players in the world in the first two decades of the last century. A founder with Nimzovich of hypermodernism, he brought a positional and strategic approach to chess theory, away from short-term material speculation and small passing advantages. In the year 1924 he defeated the then world champion José Raul Capablanca, in the tournament in New York, with a game system that bears his name (Apertura Réti). Whitehead hadn't been beaten in eight years.

This book delves into the fascinating universe of artistic endings, a specialty, among others, of the brilliant Réti. It is updated and contrasted with today's powerful analysis modules. However, the observation of the British chess composition specialist Frank Healey (1828-1906) is enriching:

"The problems certainly constitute the poetry of chess. Under a different form, we ask the humble tasks of the problem writer for the same imaginative depth, the same agile perception of beauty and the same creative fecundity that we require of the poet. Without taking the analogy too far, we could say that the 32 pieces make up the composer's alphabet, that the board is the sheet of paper and that the positions inscribed in it are comparable to a good number of stanzas"
