COLLE SYSTEM: KOLTANOWSKI VARIATION 5 c3 * IGM Andrew Soltis * 1 d4 d5 2 e3 Nf6 3 Bd3 e6 4 Nf3 c5 5 c3 and other moves where Black does not play c5. Subtitle: Your 1st or 2nd White opening. There aren't as many strategic plans and positional themes as in the Queen's Gambit; but there are still quite a lot - and that's enough for 95 per cent of serious players. Against an amateur opponent, the Colle is a deadly weapon, a quick killer. Edgar Colle, and his fellow Belgian native, GM George Koltanowski, registered a string of sparkling victories, many of them in less than thirty moves, with this system. Koltanowski even had the great Alekhine (World Champion) on the ropes (but Alekhine escaped with a draw). "The basic elements are so simple as to be foolproof. White puts his pawns at c3, d4 and e3. His Knights go to f3 and d2. His light-squared Bishop seizes a key diagonal at d3. And, after he castles, White advances his e-pawn, thereby opening up the game and liberating his c1 Bishop. That, in a nutshell, is the Colle. But, before we consider the few key variations, we'll examine the main themes of the opening: Chapter One: How White Wins, Chapter Two: How White Loses, Chapter Three: Pawn Planning in the Middlegame, and Chapter Four: The Colle Endgame. In the fifth, and final chapter, we'll examine the early main lines of the Colle in-depth"-Soltis. * List Price = $ 16.50- $ 25.00 Pages MINT, binding MINT. Not a remainder or ex-library.
