TonyK, in response to what you wrote on the update, here is....

1.c4 c6

2.g3 d5

3.Bg2 Nf6

4.Nf3 dxc4

5.Qc2 Qd5

6.Nc3 Qh5

7.d3 cxd3

[7...Bf5 8.h3 cxd3 9.Qa4 Nbd7 (9...Bd7 10.g4 Qc5 11.Be3 Qd6 12.Rd1+/-) 10.g4+/-]

8.Qxd3 Na6

TonyK, here you wrote: Black seems to have a pawn more for very little. I prefer to play such moves as d3 when Black has weakened his queenside by playing ...b5, myself, but it is interesting nonetheless! 

But please reconsider.  Black, in my opinion, has not solve his opening problems completely yet. For example:

9.h3 Bf5

10.Qd4 (idea of playing g4)

10 ....  Bd7

[10...Bc2 11.Bg5 h6 12.Bxf6 gxf6 13.Qd2 Qg6 14.Rc1 Bf5 15.Nh4 Qh7 16.Nxf5 Qxf5 17.Rd1 h5 18.0-0 Bh6 19.Qd4 0-0 20.Qd7 Qxd7 21.Rxd7 Nc5 22.Rxe7 Rfd8 23.Ne4 Nxe4 24.Bxe4+/-]

11.Bg5 Does Black really have a comfortable game here? I mean, it is not simple to determine how he completes his development while White enjoys such a wonderful space advantage, .piece placement and lead in development.

11...h6

12.g4+-

1. c4 c6 2. g3 d5 3. Bg2 Nf6 4. Nf3 dxc4 5. Qc2 Qd5
6. Nc3 Qh5 and here I introduce a line I have been looking into but I have not had the chance of putting it in practice since no one has given me the chance of playing it OTB or on the internet--

7. d3!? Bh3

[7... Bf5 8. h3 cxd3 (8... Bg6 9. g4 Qa5 10. Bd2 Nbd7 11.O-O e6 12. e4 Ne5 13. d4 Nxf3+ 14. Bxf3 h6 15. b3
cxb3 16. axb3 Qc7 17. Bg2 Be7 18. f4)  9. Qb3 b5 (9... Bc8 10. Be3 dxe2 11. Kxe2 e6 12. Rad1) 10. g4 Nxg4 11.hxg4 Qxg4 12. Bh3 Qh4 13. Nxb5 1-0]

8. Bxh3 Qxh3 9. dxc4 e6 10. Be3 Nbd7 11.O-O-O Bc5 12. Bxc5 Nxc5 13. Rd4 O-O

(13... Ke7 14. Qd2 significant advantage)

14. Rhd1 a5 15. b3

(even 15.Qd2 is good here)

15...Qg2 16. Qd2 Qxf2 17. Qg5 b6 18. Ne5 b5 19. Nxc6 b4 20. Qxc5 bxc3 21. Qe5 Qxh2
22. Kc2 Qg2 23. Nxa5 Nd5 24. cxd5 Rxa5 25. a4 exd5 26. Qe3

White's better placed pieces and connected passed pawns give him a very pleasant game despite
being a pawn down.

Everyman have or are about to release a Reti repertoire work by Nigel Davies ('The Dynamic Reti' perhaps?). Nigel's books always include plenty of original ideas and good explanation and I think there should be some good coverage of this critical 4...dxc4! variation which it's interesting to note Davies has played with both colours.

It was interesting to see that Tony had covered the sideline 1.c4 c6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 e5 in this months update. I think I would have opted for cxd and d4 quite quickly myself, as I don`t think responding with e4 is that good for black.

Now, I was wondering about one of the lines that Tony gives in his book "The Dynamic English": 1.c4 c6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 Nf6 4.Nf3 dxc, I have been having some problems against this line after 5.Qc2 Qd5 and am not encouraged when I see that it scores an astonishing 43% for black (vs. 18% for white) on chesslab.com. This does not necessarily mean that much, but I note that this line has been played by strong players as Antony Miles and Michael Adams as Black. In "The Dynamic English" Tony quotes the game Ma.Tseitlin-Pinter, which continues 6. Nc3 Qh5 7.Nd1 e5 8.Ne3 e4 9.Nh4 Be6 10 Bxe4 Nxe4 11.Qxe4, ending with "unclear". I don`t feel that this is very informative in my search for a good plan for white (although I think the book in general is very good). I note that white has in some games gambited a pawn by a quick b3. Is this white`s best?

Please shed some light on the position!
