while the first reversi 10x10 chiampionship is started, the question i have is: "in your opinion, which are the reversi 8x8 openings that works better in 10x10?"
the problem here is that is takes more time to get to the edges. In many openings at a 8x8 board, you need the edges.
My solution is that you follow the basic rules, stay in the middle, combine your stones and futher...
but, i heard and discover that at a 10x10 board the maximun stones strategie often more works.
One opening from the 8x8 board that i play often and many wins with, is iago. In this opening white needs, on a 8x8 board, the edges. But now there are no edges, white has a huge “border” of stones.
I try many openings that are on a 8x8 board really bad, but at a 10x10 nog that bad. I try to find openings true the basic principals of othello...
I think most 8*8 openings fit very well in the 10*10 board. The only difference is that they change after 10-15 moves because the borders are being used in the 8*8 story.
