This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala studies the Colle, one of his favourite opening systems. The Colle is a reliable option for White, and is easy to learn and play. White typically builds on solid foundations before unleashing an attack on the enemy king. This straightforward plan makes it particularly popular at club level, but the Colle is played successfully by Grandmasters too. Lakdawala covers both the main lines and the more aggressive Colle-Zukertort Attack, examines the key positional and tactical ideas for both sides, and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Colle.
*Essential guidance and training in the Colle System
*Presents a Colle repertoire for White
*Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

Editorial Reviews

As with Lakdawala's other books, this is a very enjoyable read. It is easy to follow, leaves you with a smile on your face, and a keen sense that you know exactly what is going on with Lakdawala there to guide you. Once you have worked your way through the book, you are left with the confidence to play the opening and the suggested lines.  Even though I possibly should know better, I am beginning to feel like a sucker for enjoying Lakdawala's books so much. If I were a young player looking to improve my game and understand an opening, I would most likely be picking up his books at the same pace people buy overpriced candy and popcorn at the movie theater, though these books last a lot longer and you do not end up feeling guilty afterward.-
