Chess systems, what are they?

  • #1

    Hi everyone,

    I am fairly new to chess and I have been browsing the internet looking at different openings. I am curious about all the different systems I keep on stumbling upon. For example, the Makagonov System. I was wondering what is the difference between a normal opening and a system opening? I hope it is not a very stupid question.

    Thank you.

    A system opening can be played regardless of your opponent's repsonses.

    Is there a list of them somewhere that I could view?

    I don't have one, no.

    One such system is the London System.There is a wealth of information on youtube about it.I'd recommend you check it out.
