A real favorite among club players. The Colle-Koltanowski system (playing d4, Nf3, e3, Bd3 and eventually b3) is very easy to learn, yet an extremely dangerous opening. White goes for a simple set up, aiming all of his pieces towards Black’s kingside. White doesn’t need to rely on learning reams of opening theory to master this opening, therefore suiting players who do not want to spend their entire spare time reading, watching and learning thirty moves of theory. In this DVD, GM Simon Williams shows you the key themes, concentrating on plans that you can remember easily. This approach should give you a deadly weapon that is a brilliant accompanying DVD to the London System and Torre Attack.
Simon Williams became a IM in 1998 and a GM in 2008. For the
last 15 years he has concentrated on teaching, playing and making
instructional chess DVDs. His playing style is very aggressive, preferring
attacking chess to positional grinds, hence why he is perfect
for DVDs on the King’s Gambit and Mazing Moves! He is the author
of numerous chess books. My first chess book. ‘Play the Classical
Dutch’ got voted, in New in Chess, as one of the top 10 chess books
of all time.
