Jobava London System

Die_Schanze

But i guess it would be Hebden-System instead of Mark's opening. Some source (games, books, videos,...) from 2008 and it could have been his name in the opening. Mark could be everyone,  GM Mark Hebden is of course a player to follow in such openings. 

There is already the hebden torre. So he got his name into opening theory.

Indeed Mark Hebden played many Barry attack (maybe still).

But as we pointed out, Barry attack is different from Jobava attack.

Barry attack is 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Bf4.

In the Jobava, it usually goes 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Bf4 g6 4.e3.

The second one is slightly improved for white, since the h4-h5 ideas work more smoothly without a knight at f3- but still the objective evaluation of the position is "equal".
