The Colle System is rather a playing scheme than an opening.
The Caro-Kann opening (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5) is said, possibly unfairly, to be a bit on the tame side.
The Catalan is an opening in which Black may well be able to obtain easy equality, but in which he frequently draws the short straw in the ensuing positional battle.
he French Defense has a proven reputation for adaptability and soundness, and is attractive to the Black player who seeks a complex strategic fi ght in unbalanced positions, with healthy counterplay and many chances to decide sharp battles in his favor!
French w/o Nc3
The Modern Benoni is a fighting defence that will suit players aiming for active play rather than patient defence.
The Nimzo-Indian can well be called the opening of the world champions.
How to Play Nimzo
The variations 4.f3 and the Sämisch, which are presented on this CD, are ideally suited to fight the Nimzo Indian.
Nimzo Indian 4. f3
The Nimzo-Indian is not only one of the most solid openings against 1.d4, but it also suits the player with Black who is aiming from the start for the full point.
The Philidor Denfence 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 combines a number of advantages. The black player has a choice of various types of positions - he can play with or without capturing on d4.
The Pirc Defence is a highly flexible and double-edged opening with which Black can avoid premature simplification and go for the full point.
The Queens Gambit Accepted is one of the classical openings against 1.d4 and has been (is) part of the repertoire of all World Champions.
Queen's Gambit Accepted
When playing as White, if you do not want to enter sharp opening systems, you would do better to fight against the Dragon by castling short. These specific variations are the theme of Rogozenko‘s CD Dragon 1.
Sicilian Dragon 1
The Dragon system of the Sicilian Defence belongs to those openings, which you do not simply play casually, but about which you become passionate.
Sicilian Dragon 2
This is the position which has been examined by our English author. GM Kosten's very commited work is an exclusive database with ''only'' 942 entries.
There is little doubt that, with its numerous sub-systems, the Sicilian Defence represents a powerful challenge for anyone who plays 1.e4.
Sicilian Alapin System
His first CD is intended first of all for players who already have some experience with the Dragon.
Dragon for Experts
The Sicilian Sveshnikov variation is a increasingly popular line in the Sicilian Defense.
The Meran Variation is an extremely dynamic opening, and its no coincidence that it belongs to the opening repertoire of geniusses such as Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand and Shirov.
Modern middlegame theory does not exist in written form. That is why players and trainers have to go back to the old recommendation by Nimzowitsch – to study typical positional methods. But who is better placed to teach us about their own powerful weapons than the great champions of the past?

Torre Attack, with 1.d4 followed by 2.Nf3 and 3.Bg5, is a solid and easy to learn opening system with hidden dynamic potential.
