Play the London System

256 pages, paperback, Everyman, 1. edition 2010.

Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

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 defence. 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.

  • A repertoire for White with the London System

  • Covers both the main lines and tricky sidelines

  • Includes game summaries with key points to remember
