The London System Reloaded - GM Ron Henley (Master Method #35)
The London System is a flexible opening which White can use virtually against any of Black’s setups. The London System usually starts with the moves 1.d4 and 2.Bf4. This makes it the perfect choice for busy club players who prefer to understand key strategic and tactical ideas instead of having to memorize an endless number of theoretical variations.
For a long time, the London System was considered to be a dry and boring opening, used by players who just wanted to get a playable position out of the opening. In recent years, however, World Champion Magnus Carlsen and many other world class players have discovered plenty of new and spicy possibilities to make the London Systema deadly opening.
In London System Reloaded, the American Grandmaster Ron W. Henley provides you with all the key lines in the London System after 1.d4 d5 2.Bf4 and gives you a high-level understanding of a fashionable and aggressive opening for White.
