The London System with 2.Bf4 Reloaded

Why bother learning hundreds of complex variations when you can play a simple yet deadly opening – the London System with 2.Bf4. Over the last couple of years nearly all the world’s elite grandmasters have been employing the London System, and on this DVD Simon Williams shows what we can learn from their practice. The “Ginger GM“ takes a look at all the latest developments whilst teaching you all the basics that you need to know in order to play this opening with success.

Following his first bestseller on the London System, Williams‘ new work not only updates previous analyses but is also packed with new and original ideas which can be used even at the highest level - a must for players who want results, yet do not have much time on their hands. If you’re not a practitioner of the London System yet, in fact the only question remains: “Why Not?”

The Queen’s Pawn games are a series of openings in which, after 1.d4 d5, White does without the advance c2-c4 in the early stages of the game or even completely. This may mean less pressure being put on Black’s position, but in return White is mostly able to deploy his forces without disruption. One very popular system, above all among amateurs, is, e. g., the rapid development of the Nf3 and Bf4, the London System. White’s setup is apparently simple: e3, Bd3, Nbd2 and c3 are meant to follow. If necessary, h3 will create a retreat square on h2 for the Bf4, so as to be able to avoid a threatened exchange after ...Nh5. An additional attraction of White’s setup is that it can be employed not only after 1.d4 d5, but against almost all black setups after 1.d4.
