    blitz is everything below 15 minutes according to fide handbook. 10 minutes no increment is most definitely blitz---especially if below 2000s are playing. actually it's a little useless to talk about time controls in isolation. the time control and the elo of the players has to be considered together to get a true picture of what's going on. most people skip from one topic to the other failing to recognize that they need to be considered in combination. above ~2200 internet blitz as an activity is something completely divorced from, say, two 1200s playing a 1, 3, 5, or 10 no increment game.  emus and rheas.

    "The London System is similar to the Colle except that White develops the dark-square bishop to f4 prior to playing e3. It’s a very flexible system that you can use against virtually any Black setup. The name was adopted after the system was used in a tournament in 1922 in London, of course. The system is fairly easy to learn but still packs some punch. Players who play the London System enjoy its flexibility and prefer to avoid a ton of opening preparation.

    White establishes a powerful grip in the center and then initiates an attack against Black’s king wherever Black puts it. Black has many different types of defensive setups, but White’s basic strategy remains the same regardless. Pavel Blatny used the London System against Jason Luchan in the 2001 U.S.Open. He adopted a pawn formation called the Stonewall and overwhelmed his opponent on the kingside." - From Chess Openings For Dummies by James Eade

    Nice video on this pawn structure Roman. That Qa3 move and Bf5 moves were unexpected.

    This system for white of the bishop outside of the pawn triangle as a queen's pawn/delayed stonewall system was played a lot by GM Julian Hodgson in the 1990's. So it has been played atthe GM level.

    Check out Shankland's videos on how to deal with passive queen pawn openings. He recommends some nice active approaches to this kind of crap from white.
