The London System by GM Damian Lemos

The London System is a chess opening that usually arises after 1.d4 and 2.Bf4, or 2.Nf3 and 3.Bf4. It is a "system" opening that can be used against virtually any black defense and thus comprises a smaller body of opening theory than many other openings.
The London is a set of solid lines where after 1.d4 White quickly develops his dark-squared bishop to f4 and normally bolsters his center with pawns on c3 and e3 rather than expanding. Although it has the potential for a quick kingside attack, the white forces are generally flexible enough to engage in a battle anywhere on the board. Historically it developed into a system mainly from three variations:
• 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4
• 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.Bf4
• 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Bf4
"There is one opening that shines above all others when comparing reward payout to the input effort," says Zhigen Lin. "It is relatively quick to learn and obscure enough that even titled opponents may not have a proper antidote lined up." He is - of course - talking about the London System, popularized by the London BCF Congress Tournament of 1922.
Learning the London system is not hard, and it can be an essential arrow in your quiver!
All you need is a set of videos by an experienced GM and, of course, a lot of practice!

THE LONDON SYSTEM Review by White-raven
I've just starting diving into this program and I'm so excited that I wanted to go ahead and review so others might have the opportunity to purchase while the program is half off. Don't wait, if you want many hours of coaching and learning from those that have played this particular system, purchase immediately and you will be glad you did ;) (Posted on March 31, 2020)

Great learning tool Review by python8
Thank you for the comprehensive learning course of the London System. After initially playing the London System because it was an easy to learn system that gave a good chance for an opening set up against almost any black responses, with minimal study, I have enjoyed taking my understanding to the next level. Now I look forward to playing into some exciting lines with ideas I can understand, rather than just aiming to "achieve" the London wedge :-) (Posted on March 14, 2020)
