♛ Find the opening variations of the Colle–Zukertort System shown in the video in this blog-post –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you one of the most underrated chess openings for White: the Colle–Zukertort System. It is a universal chess opening system that can be played against any move by Black.

Similar to the London System, but more aggressive and less well-known, this opening system typically follows this move order: 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 e6 3.e3 Nf6 4.Bd3 c5 5.b3 Nc6 6.0-0 Bd6 7.Bb2 0-0 8.Nbd2.

It’s important to note that you develop your queenside knight to d2 instead of the usual square c3, as you want to keep the diagonal open for your dark-squared bishop on b2, which will be a key piece for your future kingside attack.

Watch the full video lesson to learn the common opening setup, key ideas, and middlegame attacking plans for White.

  2. For evey like this comment gets i will drink 1 cup of water

  3. they play Bishop g4 often instead of e6

  4. I just started to play this again due to your old video, happy to see a new one about this ! Thanks again for your videos !

  5. To be one of those people: Do you have a reccomendation against the 3.Bf5 "elephant in the room" ? it's quite popular aswell.

  6. Excellente! it looks good. I have not seen that before, and I will try it in several games. For me that is the best from Smirnov.

  7. I play this opening in bullet games. It's a pretty good opening and my favorite.

  8. Ah. The stone wall. My fav is either white or black

  9. I agree with this.
    This is so satisfying to play.😎♟

  10. 10:15 i rewatched this joke 5 times, you're such a good teacher man, very funny, effective, and entertaining… i love your videos so much even though i really hate chess rn

  11. Can you actually get a title when you only play online? Or is it mandatory to play official tournaments over the board?

  12. Does this work against King's Indian / Modern type setups?

  13. Hello igor I start playing chess from 13 Jan 2024 now I am at 1100 and your video helps me a lot. now I am struggling with the black please suggest the best opening for black.

  14. Maybe consider making some chessable courses Igor. Including this opening.

    By the way as an idea I suggest looking at the opening that Mark Hunt uses. The famous MMA and kickboxing star is very good at chess with peak ELO of 2065 in bullet which is almost all he plays. One can see why he could be so effective in combat sports with that level of fast intellect and incredible power along with an ungodly chin.

    Anyway the opening is a double fianchetto. Check out some of his games.

    MMA is probably more up gotham's Avenue but it's impossible to contact him so if you can tap into the MMA fanbase to grow your own subscriber count why not.

  15. I started off with the Colle-Zuckertorte. It's a great choice for beginners.

  16. Thank you GM Igor! I have been playing the London System lately and this is a really great variation to add to my toolbox!

  17. 7:56
    What shall we do if Black Moves NB4 instead of Nd7?
    Putting pressure C2 pawn

  18. My favorite opening for a white just happens to be the Colle Zukertort.

  19. Utterly destroying oppenants in rapid. Wow I like it! Very easy to learn. Thank you so much Igor Grand Master

  20. Can you make a detailed video for petrov defense

  21. My new favourite opening, bye bye London.👋👋👋

  22. After Knxd7, d4xc5 black can take the pawn by his bishop to open his queen on the 7th rank and support his king

  23. Sir can u make a video on middle game plans

  24. Thank you ones again and again, fantastic work 👏 and thank you
