London System Powerbook 2021

Tactic Toolbox London System
On this DVD, Simon Williams shows all the complications in the London System one has to know as White, giving you the tactical tools for a successful practice – the player who knows the typical motifs has an advantage over the board.
On this DVD GM Yannick Pelletier offers Black a repertoire against the London System that you can employ no matter which opening (Systems with d5, systems with g6, Queen’s Indian, Queen’s Gambit, Benoni, Benko, Dutch) you usually play against 1.d4 followe
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.

The Accelerated London with 2.Bf4
On this DVD Nigel Davies explores these fascinating plans which give the London System a lot of bite and offer scope for creativity.
If you are looking for a new attacking plan against the popular Queen’s Gambit, then this download is for you. Completely new ideas after 1.d4 d5 2.Bf4 turn the solid London system into a serious weapon. New approaches and Fritz analyses will catch out an unprepared opponent. Henrik Danielsen used this system to win the Icelandic blitz championship in 2011. Some strong GMs and IMs didn't realise the danger before it was too late. Even after Black’s best defence White will be able to fight for an advantage. After watching 60 minutes you have a total opening plan against the Queen’s Gambit.
Safe and active with the Dutch Stonewall
The popular Stonewall with f5, e6, d5 and c6 earned its name because in practice it turned out to be a legendary defensive weapon. But if you play the setup correctly (that means with ...b6, ...Bb7 etc.), you can also quickly become active.
Queen‘s Pawn Openings such as the Trompowsky, the London System, the Colle System, the Torre Attack and many others crop up all the time at club level. From time to time they are popular with Grandmasters too! It is essential for players at all levels to have something prepared, or one runs the risk of getting smashed by a standard plan. The players who use these openings usually understand them very well and know how to angle the game in the right direction for them and the wrong direction for you. IM Andrew Martin presents solutions for Black against the following remarkable array of QP Openings: The Trompowsky, The Pseudo-Trompowsky, The Torre attack, The Colle System and Colle Zukertort System, The London System, The Stonewall, The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, The Prie System 2 a3, The Reversed French, 1 d4 Nf6 2 g4?!. Move orders with 1...d5 and 1...Nf6 with either ...g6 or ...e6 are all covered. You may not agree with all of Martin’s suggestions, but you will certainly get a decent position as Black with chances to play for the win every time! This is just what the club player needs. Video running time: more than 6 hours!
