It's no secret why the London System is such a popular opening. White's development plan is very easy to learn, and it can be employed against virtually any defence. What's more, White can choose either to attack directly or to instigate a more positional strategy. Many Black players admit they hate facing the London System, which is surely a good reason to play it! In this book Cyrus Lakdawala presents a reliable repertoire for White. Drawing upon his vast experience in the opening, Lakdawala reveals all his ideas and explains in detail the typical plans and tactics. This book tells you everything you need to know about the London System.
