    This sort of game is not at all unusual in my experience. I've had many similar wins in the London, especially when castling long.

    It isn't hard to play an exciting London, or a boring Sicilian for that matter. It all depends on how you handle it.

    In fairness, this game is an excellent illustration of how to successfully attack a solid passive Black response to the London. Black has zero pressure from the beginning on white's center or queenside. C6,E6,D5. With black developing behind this and castling early.

    People are always going to hate systems. I think it's a misery-loves-company kind of phenomenon. They memorize the first 50 moves of some Sicilian HYPEraccelerated mnemonic dragon, only to have you bust out your system within a few moves and avoid all their theory. They want you to suffer all the memorization along with them and think you should have to make the same bad choices in life as they did, LOL.
