Sep-07-05  hayton3: Nice demonstration by Tal of how to disarm the Colle opening and turn its weaponary back onto itself.

Of particular interest is the defensive bishop at f8 guarding the black squares and allowing the pawns in front of the king to repel the attack.

Also the white squared bishop is established along the beautiful a8-h1 diagonal for permanent kingside sniping.

The d6 pawn keeps knights out of e5 and the rooks come to the e & d files for central pressure.

Finally the queen stands on a lateral guard of the 7th rank in the bomb shelter afforded by the c5 pawn, awaiting developments.

  perfidious: An unusual instance where Tal is chiefly in the role of the defender, though he performs his duties with a deft hand, creating a strong square at e5, repulsing White's attack, then turning his attention to the weakness in the e-file.
