Colle System Games
Compiled by MidnightDuffer

In the Colle system, if Black gets the Queen Bishop out, say to f5 as many players do and then subsequently e3; chances become rather even; this is key; if not, White sometimes gets a good attack going as shown by it's originating exponent Edgar Colle.

A pretty fair system and in older books, such as Chernev's "Logical Chess"; a number of examples are to be found.

The exemplary game of the Colle System
Colle vs J J G Delvaux, 1929 
(D05) Queen's Pawn Game, 22 moves, 1-0

A quick Draw, Black's QB not developed till late
Colle vs Loman, 1923 
(D05) Queen's Pawn Game, 20 moves, 1/2-1/2

13. a3 seems important, still studying why!?
Colle vs Bogoljubov, 1930 
(D04) Queen's Pawn Game, 34 moves, 1-0
