the London System is one of the oldest, most respected openings. The main idea behind playing it is of course to try to bore your opponent into submission. 

Lol.

What an asshole.

I am confused whether to play the London or e4 now sad.png I tried out e4 today and won 2 out of 2 games, coincidentally both being against the Accelerated Dragon.

Grandmaster Simon Williams recommends not to play c4 in the london unless play goes 1.d4 d5 2.Bf4 Bf5, but I was going through a few games of Gata Kamsky and it seems he plays c4 as long as the opponent doesn't seem to be able to put in a c5 in the near future. Could anyone recommend what to do in such situations?

What's wrong with 2....c5?

Nothing?

I tried to add the London sudden to my repertoire... But to me it didn't give me that much interest. I'm a person who likes Gambits and open games with lots of attacks from both sides

I have killed the London System so there is no reason that I will play it as white.

Some computers actually prefer black in this system.

I am not bored anymore against the London System!

 

e4 means that you are an aggressive in chess.

Your opponent misplayed. One does not play c3 Nbd2 against a KID type setup.

He played Be2 not Bd3

It is accelerated London then it reached a normal London Position.

Yes, but not in the Pseudo-King's Indian setup.

If you want something more tactical, try the Scotch Gambit. Even if Black doesn't try hold on to the pawn (which is considered to be bad), the board will be open, which makes for a game full of tactical possibilities.

What do you play after Bc5? Sac the pawn with c3?
