By playing the London System, with 1.d4 followed by 2.Nf3 and 3.Bf4, White can avoid a theoretical discussion and instead use natural ability plus a knowledge of plans. The weight of the struggle tends to shift towards the middlegame, but White can also pull off devastatingly quick wins should Black be unaware of the dangers. Against some of the most natural moves you can imagine, White often whips up devastating attacks as can be seen in the games of David Bronstein, Gata Kamsky, Vlatko Kovacevic and Pavel Blatny. On this DVD Davies explains how White should play against Black’s various different set-ups using twenty-one illustrative games. He also discusses how the typical pawn structures influence play later in the game, so the viewer will always know what he should be trying to do. Video running time: more than 4 hours.
