      The Colle System Koltanowski Variation: 5. c3
      1.d4 d5 2.e3 Nf6 3.Bd3 e6 4.Nf3 c5 5.c3 and other moves where Black does not play c5. There aren't as many strategic plans and positional themes as in the Queen's Gambit; but there are still quite a lot - and that's enough for 95 percent of serious players. Against an amateur opponent, the Colle is a deadly weapon, a quick killer. Edgar Colle and his fellow Belgian native, GM George Koltanowski, registered a string of sparkling victories, many of them in less than thirty moves, with this system. He even had the great Alekhine on the ropes with it.

      Beating the Sicilian Defense Chameleon Variation
      The title is to make it strong and clear it is written from the White side. You do not have to wade through page after page, suggestion after suggestion, to find the best White continuations. The analysis will show you how to get an advantage with White by getting you through the opening against all Black variations. White plays 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.Ne2, with the flexible option to break through with d4 if desired.

      White Opening System: Stonewall Attack, Colle System and Torre Attack
      GM Soltis states: "Every chessplayer dreams of finding an opening that plays itself. After awhile the novice player learnes this is an impossible dream. There are, however, some universal systems of development that a player can adopt when he has the white pieces." By combining three aggressive, easy to understand openings, the author delivers. Not only does Soltis give you opening analysis and ideas, each chapter has Middlegame strategy.
