  1. Duude I just won a game with the London 😀

  2. I like how the beginner players can sometimes play unique creative openings or garbage openings

  3. why is he playing with 615 point opponent ?

  4. Even if all I remember is …c5 c3, I feel I’ve learned enough to be dangerous. 😅

  5. Thanks Levy, this video has helped me understand the london immensely!

  6. I'll give it a shot. I mostly play the catalan. I don't think I've ever played the London. Thanks Levy!

  7. thank you so much for all your content. I m really thankful for all what u put out.

  8. Im really new to chess and thought id give this a try so i set up a mega easy bot, in total my game looked like this:
    1. d4 d5 2. Bf4 e5 3. Nf3 Be7 4. e3 f6 5. c3 b5 6. Bxb5+ Nd7 7. Qb3 g6 8. O-O h5 9. Qxd5 a5 10. Rd1 Bd6 11. dxe5 Ne7 12. Qxa8 Nf5 13. exd6 Nh6 14. Dxc7 Kf7 15. Bc4+ Kf8 16. cxd8 = Q+ Kg7 17. Rxd7+ bxd7 18. Qxd7+ Nf7 19. Qxf7#
    I have no idea if my decisions are on the right track so some feedback would be greatly appreciated! In total it said I had 6 blunders, can someone please explain why my 3rd move Nf3 is classed as a blunder?
    Many Thanks in advance!
    P.s if anyone knows of any other great resources please let me know 🙂

  9. It's so good at the same time so hard to memorize all moves

  10. my rating went down by 300 because I hit the chess plateau. But by watching this video and some others my rating went back to where it was before

  11. Hey thanks man i am so bad at chess i hope i can beat someone with this knowledge( i guess i wrote that right xD)

  12. tried my first jo baba london today and won in 9 moves from a resignation after gaining 6 points of free material lol

  13. Is the London System considered a London System from the moment you move the queens pawn 2 places? Or do you have to let it develop further before you would call it the London System?

  14. The best way to master a opening is to keep playing it and learning from experience

  15. Yo levy or anyone else, what do I do if I play d4 and my opponent plays e5?

  16. 4:07 I've watched this video for 4 minutes ten times and then the rest of it too and I'm still not ready because at 600 rapid my opponents are playing moves that probably make no sense to higher rated players but everything becomes chaotic and then it devolves into who hangs their queen or mate in 2 first.

  17. What if they play legendary xqc opening??🤔🤔🤔🙏🙏🙏

  18. The yo papa style London?
    I thought there was only yo mama

  19. Won my first time using the London system, I thought I did very good considering I’m only 300 however the end game analysis kept saying me moving my pieces to form the full pyramid were all mistakes and blunders 🙃

  20. You are the ambassador to chess culture.
    Hikaru is #2
    Funny stuff always

  21. I watched the entire video, very educational, well done.

  22. Digging the London. This along with the video on the French has really improved my play. Tough to do well when you jack up the opening.

  23. Just started playing seriously again and this really helped me in my 1st Tournament (LV Open, only one week prep) in 5 years. Really familiar with the Stonewall attack and this merged nicely with that background. Black, yeah, those games didn't fair so well, and I'll definitely be hitting those vids next. TY for all your doing.

  24. Seriously. DO NOT blunder the b2 pawn. Lol.

  25. 24:34 Levy: Qh5 but then Kf6 don like that
    me: …..????? what bout Qxf7#

  26. Ik heb de neiging om naar gekke mensen te wijsen en het verveelt me

  27. I keep getting absolutely demolished because people don't play any mentioned variations and im too new at the game to handle it x)

  28. Hi , I am playing London system around 1000 rating. My biggest issue is when they jump in with knight to e4 square. What should I do then?

  29. 5:46 What do you mean discover check? In the example you have here, it doesn't look like c7 does anything, but im really bad so im missing something

  30. Hi Gotham. It was awesome video about the london sytem. But, i dont really understand how u took your own knight with your queen in 26:37 , and how ended up with taking the opponents queen(it just disappeared). Thank u in advance.

  31. c5 to c3 in response to c7 to c5 – "say it a million times, c5 to c3". Your initial introduction did NOT do it this way. That was a little confusing 🙂
