I'm thinking of switching from 1. d4 to 1.e4 as white and I'd like to add that line to my repertoire.
1. e4 e6
2. b3 d5
I had this old booklet by Mike Papa on 2.b3, but now Thomas Johansson has written a new book on it: “The Facinating Réti Gembit”.
I've played it a couple of times, the most memorable was at a simul. When i studied at University of Queensland (Brisbane, Australia), Unicef arranged a simul with the young IM David Smerdon. He was generous enough to let half of us play White. Unfortunatly I don't have the full game with me now; but I prodly remember the Start:
Paul vs. David (April, 2001)
Needless to say – I managed to piss away this promissing position...
