Jan-02-04  Halfpricemidge: If Black gives stubborn resistance like 15...Pg6; 16.Qe1, Kg7; 17QxKt on b4 or if black tries to save the knight with 15...pg6; 16.Qe1, Kt-c6 17.Qh4, Pf5; 18.PxP e.p., Rf7; 19. Ktg5, RxP(f6) 20.Qh7+, Kf8; 21.KtxP+, Ke8; 22.RxR, KtxR; 23. BxP++
Jun-28-08  sneaky pete: The game score may be wrong. Both Kagans Neueste Schachnachrichten, April 1930, and Reinfeld's <Colle's Chess Masterpieces>, first published in 1936, give 22.Rf4 .. 1-0. After 22.Rf4 Qxf4 etc is forced (22... Qh7 23.Qf8+ Qg8 24.Rh4#). If 22.Qf8+ Kh7 23.Rf4 .. was actually played, black could still offer some resistance with 23... Bd7 24.Qf7 Be8. Colle was always very precise in finishing off this kind of attacks, so I don't think 22.Qf8+ .. was played.

(I won't mention that Colle was ill, he was ill all his life, not one healthy moment).

May-18-09  YoungEd: 4. ...a6 looks like an inconsequent move to me. The Colle system can be a bit slow, but can build up power given a chance. It seems that the only way to fight it is to be active! Black doesn't manage that.

I agree. Black wasted 2 tempo in the opening, with 4...a6, 6...♗d6 & 9...♗e7.
