Bb2 delayed, Nf3-Ne5 usually, d4 certainly says

* Hebden Games: Game Collection: 1. d4 alt

Here's some more queen pawn variations of raking bishops and centralized knight ploys. Some are rigid Stonewall Attacks (with or without Bb2), but most involve an early c4 w/more flexibility. Sometimes it's Black that plays a reversed version of the Colle-Zukertort. The Krause defense 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 c5 was popular at the turn of the century; White had a variety of responses.

Readers Advice: https://chess.stackexchange.com/que...

* FTB says openings are way overrated at the amateur level -- carelessness, violations of chess principle, blind ignorance, and playing move-to-move without planning ahead are the cause of many, many losses. Don't blame the opening! Gaining experience with typical re-occurring middlegame themes (replay the game links above) is far more important than opening studies. Black can equalize in other opening main lines if s/he knows theory; more opening "sophistication" is no guarantee for an edge for White.

The C-Z requires less theoretical knowledge than most, has active piece development, king safety, a sound center, and provides a devastating attack when Black gives away a tempo or two. The list of great players who have successfully used this approach speaks for itself. It's an opening for young beginners, old timers, busy folks, city champions, world champions, and aspiring contenders. There are numerous C-Z resources for assistance. Help yourself!

If one would rather play some other opening, that's certainly O.K. too -- but stick with the same opening through thick and thin and learn it well by playing over master games, preferably annotated master games. Trying a different "surprise" opening each month will only trick yourself. It takes time to build up the experience and knowledge of an opening guru. STUDY a variety of games w/different openings, but when you sit down to PLAY an opponent on your own, use the same tried and true opening you know best.

Another approach to acquiring an opening repertoire is to play over all the games of one particular player, and mimic that player (although that person may not have faced certain defenses due to trends of the day). Perhaps the queen pawn games of Harry Nelson Pillsbury, Frank J. Marshall, Edgard Colle, Savielly Tartakower, Akiba Rubinstein, Carlos Torre, Samuel Reshevsky, Mikhail Botvinnik, Bent Larsen, Julian Hodgson, Susan Polgar, Gata Kamsky, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, etc., etc. would fit the bill. Not all, but just one or two players well studied. Amateur players tend to get quicker results by playing 1.d4, 1.e4, or 1.c4 exclusively, not all three.

* No, FTB has not played through all of this download, but it certainly looks educational: https://www.chess.co.uk/downloads/C...

Most players would do very well to study GM Richard Palliser's book Starting Out: Colle Zukertort, Barry, and 150 Attacks. The title is misleading; it's suitable for club players and national masters.
