London System: One Opening against anything

The London System is a great chess opening for beginner to intermediate chessplayers who want to improve their rating / elo. It reliably leaves you with a solid position for the middle game, so you can focus your time on that part. Subscribe if you want to see more videos 🙂

  11. Coming from a 2000, dont learn this
    Play e4 instead. Comment if u wanna learn my reporetuire

  12. dont you hate boring openings? this is notorious for being boring af
    edit: watched the video and, per usual, you made it exiting

  13. Real London system:
    Sac the queen in move 3

  14. I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT VIDEO ABOUT THE MIDDLE GAME!!! PLEASE POST IT!! I WANT TO THROW UP FROM EXITMENT!!!! REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  15. Just a comment to support all that massive work you did to describe complicated theory in 10 minutes. Thanks

  16. Plz upload videos sooner…..a humble request to you from all your views

  17. Superb. Thanks for this wonderful educational video on middle game in London System.
    Plz make more videos on variations of The London System.

  18. These are the best chess videos because they are so entertaining, but very valuable and to the point

  19. mhm how does this work against an indian opening by black? [which I see as most common and which this channel shows as the strongest for anything other than e4 by white?[

    and how do you continue if after d4 they play e5?!!??

  20. Another setup worth exploring for beginners is the king's indian attack.

  21. “Hippity hoppity your queen is my property”

    Funny as hell

  22. I see ChessPage video I click like a monke

  23. The little dialog boxes help understand how each piece feels on their missions, or if I somehow decide to unalive them for some unknown reason.

  24. chesspage1 "you can play this against anything"
    me "cool"
    my first 2 games "i don't think so"

  25. Please keep make these vids bro! I realy enjoy it😁

  26. I used this opening for a long time, but I saw your video about the Ruy Lopez and switched to it immediatly

    Your videos are great, you really helped me with openings, thank you 😀

  27. 0:31 … 8 Queens and 16 pawns, and the London STILL works?!? 😂

  28. as a white londoner i see this as an absolute win

  29. broo i would love to see caro kann middlegame strategy

  30. Lol that hipity hopity your queen is my property line was great I love it❤

  31. You know you have a perfect food’n’video moment when Chesspage1 posts

  32. This is just so entertaining to watch 🤌🏼

  33. You should do a video on pric: czech variation/defense. Its really underrated and op.

  34. So true! I am lost in the middle game lol.

  35. Before you get offended, please actually read the whole thing. The London is about “giving away your dominance” like where is the break through for the attack????
    I will use an analogy, you could have a machine gun with lots of ammo, but if the gun is blocked, and the bullets won’t come out. Then no matter how strong it is, it’s USELESS
    Okay okay, I get that you do have some sort of dominance in the london “because later, you can make an attack” or “later when your opponent gets aggressive you can use his momentum against him” but there is an issue, why attack later?? There is no advantage to it, why save your restaurant meal if you have get the meal everyday? It will just get cold later. JUST LIKE HOW IF YOU DOTN TAKE ADVANTAGE EARLY, YOUR CHANCES DROP UNLESS YOUR OPPONENT IS DUMB. If you use the London system except the pawn is not on c3 but c4, WHERE IT ACTUALLY ATTACKS SOMETHING, your position is still ROCK SOLID, your pieces are still ACTIVELY PLACED annnnd you have a machine gun that actually WORKS UNLIKE THE LONDON, WHICH IS A BLOCKED GUN. The London is solid and active but it makes no sense to hand over the “action” to the opponent. If you can’t deal with it fine, learn. It’s not hard and it’s the point of chess. Giving away your own opportunity just gives your opponent chances, and why leave things up to them when you can take charge? Why let the weather decide if you can go out today or not, YOU HAVE TO TAKE CHARGE IN LIFE AND CHESS, JUST BECAUSE ITS RAINING DOESNT MEAN YOU CANT GO OUT TO GET ICE CREAM, GO GRAB AN UMBRELLA, WHY LET EXTERNAL SOURCES DETERMINE YOU WHEN YOU CAN DETERMINE IT YOURSELF? FINE, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO IT BEST, SO LEARN AT LEAST. THERE IS NO ADVANATAGE TO NOT ADDING ONE EXTRA IDEA TO THE LONDON. C4, INSTEAD OF C3, TAKE HOLD OF YOUR LONDON, DONT MAKE YOUR MACHINE GUN OBSOLTE. OPEN THE GUN SO THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY FIRE
