If you’re looking for a super simple system to play with White, perhaps the simplest of any openings, then the Jobava London System is the must-buy DVD for your repertoire!
Your first three moves will follow the line 1.d4, 2.Nc3 and 3.Bf4; Black has few concrete setups to play against this. The London System is renowned by club players for requiring minimal preparation against openings such as the King’s Indian Defence, Grunfeld, Nimzo, Benko, Benoni, Budapest Gambit… the list goes on!
The Jobava London System is perfect for both the club player and GMs alike. Names such as Carlsen, Aronian, Rapport, and of course Baadur Jobava are now playing this exciting and attacking opening regularly.
