Starting Out: The Colle Opening
The Colle System is a solid, reliable chess opening based on the popular first move 1.d4. One of its major advantages is that although the Colle is very easy to learn and play, it leads to exciting middlegame positions where White often launches a violent attack against Black's King. The Colle is a particular favorite among club players, but is also seen at Grandmaster level; perhaps its most well-known exponents are the former World Championship Candidate Artur Yusupov and the twice World Junior Champion Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.
This book is a further addition to Everyman's best-selling "Starting Out" series, which has been acclaimed for its original approach to tackling chess openings. International Master Richard Palliser examines the fundamentals of the Colle chess opening, elaborating on the crucial early moves and ideas for both sides in a way that is often neglected in other texts. The reader is helped throughout with a plethora of notes, tips and warnings highlighting the vital characteristics of the Colle System and of chess opening play in general. Starting Out: The Colle is a perfect guide for improving players and those new to this opening.
