    This system is interesting if you facing with a Gruenfeld player, he will not play a sharp defense as he would like.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the Colle vs the London. I.e., which do you prefer and why? I like both, but only play the Colle if black doesn't bring his B to f5 early in order to trade B's with whites B on d3. That seems to defeat the purpose of the Colle.

    From "Ideas behind Modern Chess Openings" by Gary Lane:

    "The London tournament of 1922 was a top class event with its games hitting the world chess headlines of the day. Among the openings regularly employed--against a variety of set-ups by Black--was White's formation of 1 d4, 2 Nf3 and 3 Bf4, subsequently christened the 'London system'."

    This line gained notoriety when it was played in Alekhine-Euwe at the London Congress 1922. Hence, it is called the London system.

    Great attack; my personal favorite. By opening with d4, the opponent may misread it as a hypermodern or Queen's gambit-type of opening. However, it develops more classically and aggressively  in respect to center control. For a great example of this, check out Bogoljubow vs. Reti (1919, 1-0, Germany). White uses the indian attack and black uses the Wade-Tartakower Defense.
