Product Details

It's no secret why the London System is such a popular opening, especially at club level. White's development plan is very easy to learn, and it can be employed against virtually any defense. What's more, depending on mood, style or opponent, White can choose either to attack directly or to instigate a more positional strategy. Many players admit they hate facing the London System, which is surely another good reason to play it! In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala presents a reliable repertoire for White with the London System. Using illustrative games and drawing upon his vast experience in the opening, Lakdawala reveals all his secrets and explains in detail the typical plans and tactics for both sides. This book tells you everything you need to know about the London System.

  • This book is good for any player wishing to use the London. Rookies will be given a very clear view of the good and bad points of the opening. More experienced practitioners will find lots of good stuff to help clean the teeth. NM Bill McGeary -
  • This book is clearly written for White, it is biased, it is fun, it is somewhat thorough, and the games are very well annotated. Carsten Hansen -
  • The light, easy-going text makes easy reading which is enhanced by the author adding in his own personal ideas and anecdotes. So the typical London System player of the past (club player seeking comfortable development with little risk?) will be able to enjoy this work, and they will no doubt get by without being overburdened with theoretical knowledge. However, a new generation will also appreciate those areas where they can bamboozle their opponent with a cunning move order or a sharp idea that seems to come from nowhere.
