Revue de presse

Lakdawala writes in a charming and highly instructive manner. --Jeremy Silman

Présentation de l'éditeur

This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala studies the Colle, one of his favourite opening systems. The Colle is a reliable option for White, and is easy to learn and play. White typically builds on solid foundations before unleashing an attack on the enemy king. This straightforward plan makes it particularly popular at club level, but the Colle is played successfully by Grandmasters too. Lakdawala covers both the main lines and the more aggressive Colle-Zukertort Attack, examines the key positional and tactical ideas for both sides, and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Colle.

* Essential guidance and training in the Colle System
* Presents a Colle repertoire for White
* Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un bon Lakdawala ! 18 septembre 2013
Par Legoual
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Le système Colle n'est a priori pas destiné aux joueurs d'échecs ayant un grand talent. Il s'agit en effet d'une ouverture qui ne mène souvent à rien de plus que la nulle quand elle est jouée par de très forts joueurs. En revanche, à un niveau intermédiaire, les choses peuvent être bien différentes car ce système comporte pas mal de petits pièges. Ce livre vous donnera de nombreuses clés pour trouver de belles attaques ou des finales gagnantes.

Le style enthousiaste et plein d'humour du prolifique Cyrus Lakdawala rend cette lecture très agréable. De plus, l'étude de parties complètes permet d'améliorer tous les compartiments de son jeu. Livre recommandé mais peut-être à compléter avec celui de Richard Palliser sur le même thème pour aborder les (affreux) systèmes "anti-Colle".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but confusing at times 4 octobre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
My chess rating runs around 2100. I used to play the Colle and was interested in the new improvements since then.

Lakdawala has written a VERY entertaining book on an opening he plays regularly.

I really like the way he presents the opening. However, most of these are white-to-play-this-and-win plus a positive thinking pep talk (salted with interesting and often funny [to me] metaphors). In other words, Lakdawala does not present a critical analysis of the opening, instead it's a defense. However, there are glimmers of how Black could change the course of the game with different moves, move orders, and ideas. Not all the games are at the GM level and a computer is mentioned often (despite the introduction ranting against computer analysis and needing a computer proof opening that computers and theory will not dismantle).

Typically when I lean a new opening it's helpful to follow the main lines so the confusing thing is the format (which can interfere with they way I process chess information). Typically the format, inserting questions (mostly useful) adds to the sense of understanding. The problem is that there are times when the diagrams and the questions are off the main line. The feeling is one of having to go back to decipher what he's talking about.

I do like the fact that most "average" player should be able to follow the lines due to the abundance of diagrams.

Please note, despite the 416 pages, there is less on the Colle than I had hoped for... a good percentage of the book is Lakdawala entertaining us with his sense of humor. (e.g. his dog eating grass and ceremonially vomiting it up) This book is not encyclopedic which is good for the new learner and not so good for those who may already have a good sense of the opening and want more depth.

Another thing that should be understood, this is an introduction to the whole Colle complex. It covers the traditional idea of playing for e4, or the new so-called Phoenix idea of playing a reversed Slav with b4, or the "brutal" (Ladawala) Zukertort system. In other words, after reading this book you will need to head for one of the books that specialize in one of these lines.

While the Colle is essential a "one-trick" pony (if it doesn't work then white is in trouble), it is a very good and reliable trick that new players have used effectively to stay out of early trouble against superior players. (The London, played well is considered "unbeatable" while the Colle is open to debate.)

The reason this book scores so high (for me) is because it also happens to be a tactical manual. Ladawala refers to the various attacking motifs and how to look for and combine them. Some of them are advanced ideas and the newer player may have to search the meaning of some of the ideas mentioned. Still it's a good attacking manual.

So if you are fairly versed in chess, looking for a solid opening with explosive attacking potential over the board, and are willing to learn a sense of timing of when something big should happen... give this book a read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Opening Book for Players who Want to Avoid Sharp Dangerous Openings 13 juin 2015
Par Steve Allen Lenores - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I started buying Cyrus' books because he used to be my chess coach about 25 years ago. I like his Colle book because most of the players in New Mexico are not used to this system which means they are likely to misplay the opening. As an older player, I'm over sixty now, I needed a opening repertoire that was more positional and less tactical. It's like a golfer that has to adjust his swing as he gets older so that he can still compete against the younger players. All of his opening books fit the bill in that respect. I would recommend his books to anyone who wants or needs to transition from sharp tactical lines to positional chess.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You will want to play the Colle when you are done with this book! 15 octobre 2013

Well written. Fun, which is not typical of chess books. Author shows how the basic pawn structures can arise out of a variety of move orders. I don't use the Colle as a primary opening anymore, but it can really throw an opponent in certain move orders. I'm looking forward to using it a little more now!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Reading and Relying on this book for solid reference is like eating hot peppers while square dancing when suffering from diarrhe 15 août 2014

First of all, if this opening was so wonderful, then why do not the top level GM's play it every time the have the White pieces? This is just another one of those books where the author claims to be radically different than all other chess authors and that this is the greatest book ever. BLAH! Go to page 251 and see that for a reference on a certain variation he actually uses a blindfold game and two internet blitz games!!! On page 253 he gives short shrift to(11....Bg3+ 12.Kh1 doesn't bother White) when if you omit this move then White long castles next move. Bg3+ immediatly stop the long castle and makes White take more moves to reach his desired position, which is good for Black. This lack of analysis on lines that could be important clearly show the this is a superficial book at best. Only because it has recent games and covers lines where Black does not automatically play 3...e6 does it have any value. The author needs to stick to his books on the great players. Those are so much the total opposite of this book that I found it hard to believe it was the same author.
