    I used to play these patzer 'set up a pawn triange now come and get me' type opening systems and ironically had my best ever result OTB with it. But now when I see Colle or London against me I just want to smash it to pieces.. 🙂

    Now i play an equally bad kia. 🙂

    Patzer set ups?, ummm, Bruzon was rated 2652, which i guess makes him a total
    patzer, your right! Perhaps you had better revisit the Colle, the KIA is like a toothless
    granny sucking on a toffee apple 😛

    Robbie, if you bust on the KIA, you are on your own. I own too many OTB scalps with it.

    Somehow Robbie forgot to mention that the posted game was a five minute game.

    It was the the rapid play semi-final.
    Anand lost that one but knocked out Bruzon and went on to beat Topalov in the final.

    just saying.

    As a KID player myself, I find it may not have teeth, but it can gum an opponent to death.

    Damn you GP, busted again! Is there no way to slink in a few Colle games without
    being busted! Ok officer, i confess, take me down town! (holds out hands for cuffs!)

    I suggest giving my opponent a toffee apple, as symbol more than anything! 😛
