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 🙂


  1. So easy to counter .. and the scenarios are so different then the ones you're talking about..

  2. Funny how I don't know any openings but this setup is very similar to my setups when i feel I had a good opening. Turns out it has a name…i will practice this, thanks

  3. This is absolutely the perfect video for me to learn, awesome editing and straight to the point. Fantastic. Subscribed!

  4. you have no idea how helpful this youtube channel is. i try to watch other bigger youtubers but i find their videos boring and too long. this seriously helped me. thank you.

  5. Wouldn’t black stop the opening with knight to h5 attacking the bishop on f4?

  6. I am 13,and i love your VIDEOS.They are funny and easy to remember.You are the reason a child like me fell in love with chess.Thanks so much Chesspageone❤

  7. Learning is so much easyer when laughing 😀

  8. i tried this and got shat on looks like i need more practice

  9. This was my first opening I learned and tried to master. 300 games later there arr literally hundreds of holes in thisbsysten

  10. After I moved the pawn to D4, What should I do if the black move the pawn to E5?

  11. Bro what to do when your opponent doesn't capture your knight

  12. Where are the knives?! I came here for the knives!

  13. Given how much my games have improved simply from learning the Indian defence from you, I’m excited to learn this!

    Dunno how or why but the way the techniques are explained in your vids make them so much easier to learn (and remember)

  14. To the contrary my middle game is good. Opening sucks

  15. 2:57 This is a lie because anyone not being braindead won't take my Bishop with his Bishop on d2.

  16. At 2:40 how did the white bishop get in front of the pawn on E3???

    Poor video…!!!

  17. 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

  18. You've actually given me encouragement to keep going….for months I've been trying to understand all the aspects of chess and I've been overwhelmed. I finally chose the London System as one I feel most comfortable with but couldn't figure what to do when my opponent does the unexpected. These illustrations are so helpful (and entertaining) and easy for me to grasp. Now I see why I move the pieces where they should go and what the point is. Once I have this video down I look forward to the middle game instructions. I look forward to seeing many more in these easy-to-understand style.

  19. bro what should i do if they push the pawn trying to kill f4 bishop when i'm setting up the pieces, also what if they are not developing g8 knight and castling

  20. Gahd dayum boi gimme that middlegame vid I've started winning after your magnificent vids and now I want to possess more power, gonna suck it in like its the caprisun

  21. Hi. What text to speech app are you using? Thx for good content im waiting for more

  22. So what happens when they play D6 which totalled messes up the E5 square??

  23. Next: French defense, and midldle game ideas PLSSSSSSSSSSS

  24. With the middle game , I find it’s best to stay patient & to reverse engineer a checkmate

    Example : if I need more space to move my pieces I start to think which pieces can I sacrifice and how can I set up my other pieces so that when I do sac, I’ll still be winning so being patient helps bc I’m not rushing to make a big play , I’m sorta just waiting for my opponent to fuck up him/herself

  25. Bro please make a guide for sacilian and how to counter it.

  26. I played the London multiple times, I only lost once or twice, and one of those was cus I blundered mate

  27. what happens if they dont castle or that pawn on c on black sides take your pawn (whichj is at the top of the pyramic) idk how to defend against that

  28. What if an idiot does not casttle

  29. just immediately after watching this video i crushed 2 players with the london system, kudos man your content is very helpful
