If you want to have a “simple to learn” chess opening that can give you a win as early as move 8, and also surprise your opponent by playing it, you’re going to love this.
In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will show you one of the most underrated chess openings that will help you beat even stronger opponents.
The opening is called the Colle System, also known as the Colle–Koltanowski System, which is a variation of the Queen’s Pawn Game and is characterised by a systematic development of White’s minor pieces to support a quick pawn move to the e4-square.
A lot of the chess players underestimate this system and none of the top GMs play it because it looks slightly passive. However, in reality, this opening has great potential with plenty of hidden attacking opportunities that almost no chess player is aware of.
