The Colle System is one of those openings that are very solid if your opponent plays into the system. Black can avoid this opening all together by playing g6 instead of e6 at move three and opt to go into a King’s Indian formation. I have to say that this is a very fun opening to play because it is for players of all styles. Some may argue with me about that but this is so solid, just by glancing at it really, and yet some tactical brilliancies have come out of this opening.
More accurate was the same idea with inverted move order. By 13. Qc1 (hitting h6) Kh7 14. Bb4 and now 14.—Be6 can be met with 15. Nc5, white forces an useless” 13. Kh7.

King: Moves only one square at a time, but in any direction. It’s the most important piece on a chess board. If/when captured, the game is over. The king’s special move is called castling; it is the only time two pieces can move at once (king and rook).
The Nimzo-Indian Defense is solid in concept. White’s plan in playing Nc3 is to prepare e4 which could give white a serious advantage if they manage to do that so black prevents it by pinning the knight. After black exchanges their bishop for white’s knight they have complete control over e4 which makes it very difficult for white to effectively get the ideal pawn center. The Nimzo is time tested and there is no way to completely refute this solid opening.
