On this DVD about chess openings for white, GM Susan Polgar will teach you an exciting and dynamic, easy-to-learn opening system for white - the Colle System, also known as The Colle-Zukertort System.

Susan brings you 20 years of her own experience to this opening which is perfect for the chess players who only want to spend 1/10 the time it normally takes to master an opening.

If you are looking to avoid well known deeply analyzed main theoretical openings lines and want to win games in and out of the opening the Colle-Zukertort System is for you.

The Colle System is ideal for people who do not want to lose a game on move 8 because their memory failed them while, at the same time, allowing White to gain a significant advantage if Black does not respond appropriately.

The main move order in which the Colle System comes to the board is after <span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><strong>1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e3, </strong></span>this third move from White already shows his intentions of playing The The Colle-Zukertort System.

<h2><span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">Is this course for me?</span></h2>
The Colle System is one of the most flexible chess openings for white, you pretty much play it against anything that black uses to respond and not come out worse after the opening stage.

In this course, GM Susan Polgar, one of the best female players of all chess history, will show you how to deal with pet defenses Black can throw your way, that way you'll be fully prepared and there's no way your opponents will be able to surprise you.

The good news is that you don’t have to learn all the special solutions to face any of the pet defenses that black can employ all at one time. You can learn the mainline of the Colle-Zukertort System in literally 15 minutes and safely play it against practically anything.

White can either attack on the kingside, or can choose to open up the center and create an attack there.

The Colle opens with 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 e6 3. e3 Nf6 4. Bd3. Black has a number of responses here, but in this Chess course for beginners, Susan Polgar concentrates on the main move 4...c5 which White is always going to respong with 5.b3, the The Colle-Zukertort System.

The Zukertort System is where White plays b3 and fianchettoes the queen-side bishop.

After going over the basic ideas of the opening, a typical game is analysed between Maroczy and Blake, to help you see the ideas in action and better understand them so you can use them in your own games.

The Colle can easily be thwart

The Colle can easily be thwarted if Black plays the KID or the Gruenfeld. Black doesn't have to go along with White's plan.

I like the Colle Zukertort, bu

I like the Colle Zukertort, but the opening does have its downfalls. The video is very nice, slightly fuzzy because its an older edition. It gives a club player essential guidance on this opening. For a starting out player I recommend this opening. I played it and it is very fun. It gives very good attacks and is usually very effective. The down fall of this opening is that you can be tricked into an inferior line by something like 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 g6 for a grunfeld or 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Bf5 or Bg4 this is one of the downfalls of the tromposki, london and colle lines. also if e3 is played and your opponent goes for a King's Indian your white bishop is 'chewing on concrete'. If the bishop comes to f5 or your opponent goes for a variation like the dutch or Queen's Indian you can forget about your king side attack. All in all I used this variation for years and got great results. I recommend it for a beginning opening.

An ideal video for those club-level players who want to develop a d4-opening system for White without having to worry too much on memorizing variations.


Overview

Chess Openings for White: The Colle System with GM Susan Polgar

Volume 7 – Learn The Opening The Easy Way, The Colle-zukertort System
The Colle-Zukertort System.

On this DVD about chess openings for white, GM Susan Polgar will teach you an exciting and dynamic, easy-to-learn opening system for white – the Colle System, also known as The Colle-Zukertort System.

Susan brings you 20 years of her own experience to this opening which is perfect for the chess players who only want to spend 1/10 the time it normally takes to master an opening.

If you are looking to avoid well known deeply analyzed main theoretical openings lines and want to win games in and out of the opening the Colle-Zukertort System is for you.

The Colle System is ideal for people who do not want to lose a game on move 8 because their memory failed them while, at the same time, allowing White to gain a significant advantage if Black does not respond appropriately.

The main move order in which the Colle System comes to the board is after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e3, this third move from White already shows his intentions of playing The The Colle-Zukertort System.

Is this course for me?

The Colle System is one of the most flexible chess openings for white, you pretty much play it against anything that black uses to respond and not come out worse after the opening stage.

In this course, GM Susan Polgar, one of the best female players of all chess history, will show you how to deal with pet defenses Black can throw your way, that way you’ll be fully prepared and there’s no way your opponents will be able to surprise you.

The good news is that you don’t have to learn all the special solutions to face any of the pet defenses that black can employ all at one time. You can learn the mainline of the Colle-Zukertort System in literally 15 minutes and safely play it against practically anything.

Volume 7 – Learn The Opening The Easy Way, The Colle-zukertort SystemThis chess opening is good because White can decide how to proceed in the game. White can either attack on the kingside, or can choose to open up the center and create an attack there.

The Colle opens with 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 e6 3. e3 Nf6 4. Bd3. Black has a number of responses here, but in this Chess course for beginners, Susan Polgar concentrates on the main move 4…c5 which White is always going to respong with 5.b3, the The Colle-Zukertort System.

The Zukertort System is where White plays b3 and fianchettoes the queen-side bishop.

After going over the basic ideas of the opening, a typical game is analysed between Maroczy and Blake, to help you see the ideas in action and better understand them so you can use them in your own games.
