English Opening Bishop Diagonal

The English Reti Opening may resemble a reversed Modern Benoni Defence. Black can advance a pawn to d4 to gain space. White's bishop dominates the long light-squared diagonal. Black attempted to cramp the queenside with the addition of a pawn on a4. White developed a sudden deadly attack in the game Miklos Galyas vs Peter Horvath.
