Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-08-04  Halfpricemidge: If Black captured with his bishop instead of his rook then it's mate in three e.g. 29...Bgxb2 30.Bh6+, Bg7 31.Qc3! followed by mate.

  HeMateMe: A Colle crusher. I always worry about the opening pawn structure--how to get room for your dark square bishop? But, with tactical threats, white catches up in development.
May-18-10  ajile: This isn't really a Colle opening though. It's really just a queen's gambit with a wasted move. (4.c3)
