Winning With the Colle System by Ken Smith,John Hall



by Ken Smith, John Hall. One of the most solid openings in chess, White can play the Colle(. 4 d5 . f3 Nf6 . 3 e6 . d3) and give himself a simple, solid setup with clear strategic purposes. The flexibility allow White to go for different kinds of attacks. He can play the Koltanowsky . 3 and aim to bolster the center, or play the Zukertort . 3 and fianchetto the bishop on the long diagonal with pieces aimed at the Black Kingside. Smith and Hall, as usual, do a masterful job in showing the goals for White and best play against all the main possibilities Black can play against you. Show more.

Ken Smith & John Hall. I have had trouble in the past playing against the Colle as Black, so bought this book in the hope that it would let me in on some of the secrets. However, it is seriously marred by one-sidedness and wishful thinking. Some Black answers are not considered at all. In particular, there is no mention of Black playing a Stonewall, which, according to Dr. Tarrasch, is generally a good idea when White has voluntarily confined his Queen's Bishop behind his own pawns. And, more generally: if the Colle system were really so strong.

The Colle is certainly a tough nut to crack and it is easy to learn and play as White. This book can demonstrate it's solidity and simplicity. One thing I do like that they also suggest 2 or 3 alternate ways of playing, depending on what Black plays. For example, the line from the 'Anti-Indian Colle' chapter turns out to be a branch of the Torre Attack! (3.Bg5) This is actually my favorite chapter, but I have a book on the Torre that I prefer.

To some extent this book reminds me of the 'Logical Chess' move by move format, yet only about a fourth of this book is made up of complete games. Phrases like '1.d4 controls the e5 and c5 squares' seem to be directed at lower rated players but it can get annoying for me in a short while. The book Logical Chess: Move By Move: Every Move Explained New Algebraic Edition is a great book that does the same, but I think it is a better all around book.

One issue for me is when a game is quoted in the wrong move order. For example: Illustrative game # 1 Alekhine vs. Koehnlein, Duesseldorf 1908, they recommend an 'improvement' for Alekhine in a position NOT occurring in his game! (he had not castled on move 9). Additionally, Fritz did not care for their idea and it even looks like White might have ventured into some murky waters. All this aside, it seems to be a okay book if you want to learn the Colle for White. This could be a fun book for lower tier players, but experts and higher might find it boring.
