Sep-11-15  siggemannen: ouch, that hurts
Sep-11-15  ketchuplover: agreed
Sep-12-15  ajile: Since White never played c3 this isn't really a usual Colle System. White plays c4 (agreed it is later than normal) in one move and the game transposes into a more QGD structure. Black unfortunately transposes into a Dutch Stonewall that is awkward since White is already lined up on the c file which he can open at his leasure. Also in the Colle White usually plays c3 with the idea of later breaking with e4 not c4. White's c3 in the Colle also protects the Bd3 in the event Black plays ..Nc6 since it covers the b4 square. But in this game Black saved White a tempo (a3) by playing 7..Nbd7.
Sep-12-15  dehanne: Anything was better than 14...c5.

  perfidious: As the villain Francisco Scaramanga once said: <A mistress cannot serve two masters>, and so it was with Black's queen at the finish.
