Beloungie in Colle System vs Dutch Defence

The Colle is a universal system of development for the White pieces to begin a chess game. The typical move order is 1.d4, 2.Nf3, 3.e3, 4.Bd3, and 5.0-0. White can almost ignore Black while he arranges his pieces in the familiar pattern. While this opening can be played vs anything, it is primarily designed to play against a Black pawn on d5. After preparation, the e3 pawn will be advanced to e4 to pick a fight.

Ray Haines has often played the Dutch Defence 1.d4 f5 as Black. Here as White he chooses to play the Colle System set-up vs Lance Beloungie in a club game. In fact White commits to 2.e3 before Black even plays 2...f5. Most masters do not prefer the Colle vs the Dutch because it does not threaten the key squares along the long light squared diagonal, especially e4 and d5. Black gets an easier game than normal, but it still has to be played out. White could win, but below Beloungie as Black takes control of those central squares and builds a winning attack.

Activating the queen is good. 21...Qh4-/+ is even better.] 22.Nf3?
