Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-04  Marco65: Dispite White has two free moves before 26.Ng4 and 27.Qh7#, he can't prevent that without losing material
Dec-17-08  YoungEd: I'm not a Colle expert by a longshot, but doesn't its champion misplay it with an early dxc5? It seems to me that you need to try and keep a pawn on d4; that makes the threat of pushing the pawn e3-e4-5 much stronger.
Dec-18-08  nescio: <YoungEd> I'm no expert either and so I waited to see if someone more knowledgable would reply.

I think Colle played 8.dxc5 and 9.e4 because that way he is assured of a dynamic pawn structure with a pawn majority at the queenside, which may be important in the endgame. On the other hand, after 8.e4 cxd4 9.cxd4 Nb4 10.Bb1 dxe4 11.Nxe4 Be7 and 12...Nbd5 Black has good play against the isolated pawn. Preparing e4 further (but why?) with 8.Re1 may run into 8...e5 which worked well in A Metrangolo vs V Inkiov, 2001
