For decades, the chess world has run down the reputation of the Colle-Zukertort (a.k.a. the Rubinstein Attack) as an unassuming opening, claiming it did not exact the full measure of pain from Black in the quest to equalize.
If such is the case, why do strong players (as Black) avoid the Zukertort? Instead, they opt to play any of several pet defenses rather than deal with the constriction and onslaught from the main line.
A WHOLE NEW SYSTEM OF JUSTICE: ZUKE 'EM
In Zuke 'Em: The Colle-Zukertort Revolutionized, Rudel explains the basics of the Zukertort and then provides plenty of new ideas to address these various pet defenses that cowardly opponents may choose.
What is the Colle-Zukertort? It's a Colle with 5.b2-b3 i.o. 5.c2-c3
