Oct-21-04  Larsenb3: Very interesting usage of that opening, it eventually backfired completly allowing black to mainly control the center. 10.Ne5 turned into a blunder and forced a weak king side. Dominating performance by Blackburn.

  GrahamClayton: Did Potter choose the wrong plan here with 10.Ne5 and 11.f4? I always thought that White's plan in the Colle was to play e4, opening up the position.

  fredthebear: What's the point of 20.NxNd7? Don't voluntarily trade off a well-developed piece. Perhaps 20.g4, Bb5 or Rf3 would generate desired action. Black's light-squared bishop on the long diagonal is better than White's light-squared bishop.
