Default How to generate winning chances against the Colle opening ?

Hi,

I currently have a repertoire problem : as Black, I play the move
order 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6, as it suits me well if Black plays 3.c4, 3.g3
or 3.Bg5

However, I have problems generating winning chances against the Colle
opening, as my early e6 gives me few aggressive options.

It seems the main line 3.e3 c5 4.c3 d5 5.Bd3 Nc6 6.Nd2 Be7 7.0-0 0-0
holds no real winning prospects for Black.

Do you have any other suggestion for Black, even a riskier one ?

Hi,

IMO the point (the same as in the Torre-Attack) is not to play a
combination of ...d5 / ...c5, but ...d6 / c5.
If White plays a Colle with c3, the Push e3-e4 will be not very
dangerous, and in a Colle-Zuckertort (with b3 and Bb2) there will be
no Nf3-e5.
You could develop with a queenside fianchetto and Nbd7 ( Nc6 is also
possible). The following game is just an example for blacks play,
nothing special (I changed white's move order in moves 3 and 4). This
is no killer-system, but just safe and IMO sound.

Ron wrote in message news:ronaldinho_m- I'm not sure how strong you are, but I'd encourage you to post a full
game or two, because it's quite possible the problem isn't the opening.

Hi Ron,

I'm rated 2051 FIDE, and I have no game to post at the moment, as this
is only preparatory work, having never faced the Colle so far OTB in a
serious game. My first evaluation rests on a few (drawn) blitz games
and some games I've played through in databases.

I'm going to have a look at the Bd6 variation.

Cheers,
