About This Course

A system is something more powerful and widely applicable than an opening.

This London System is a Dangerous, Yet Easy-to-Learn White Opening You Can Learn in a Couple Hours and Play for the Rest of Your Career!

Giants like Kramnik and Carlsen had adopted it to avoid the dangerous computer preparation of guys like Caruana and Nakamura!

Simply play 1.d4 and 2.Bf4 and then ―no matter what Black does― apply this strategic blueprint to enjoy a solid enough edge to handle any strength of your opponent.

Why Was This Course Created?

Who has not wanted to play in a professional manner without worrying about losing on the first stage?

It feels so good to play in your way without taking much care of what your rival is doing ―without being distracted with cheap traps or lines from your opponent!

That’s why the author of this course stopped studying openings some years ago.

Instead of continuing laboring over the latest lines, checking each one closely with his computer, he decided to use simple “piece path” systems to get amazing positions

Finally, he got what he wanted: Not worrying about his opponents responses anymore!

To know an opening is good… To learn a trap might be useful… But to master a system is so much better!

A system is something more powerful and widely applicable than an opening.

The London System is one of the most famous systems in chess!

Crush the King’s Indian!

Forget the boring idea of building a ‘space advantage’ on the queenside (while Black mates you!).

Instead, use the deadly opposite castling attack for easy wins!

Dominate the Dutch!

Tired of “boring” dutch players trying to lock the position up?

IM Ratkovic’s London Method exploits the one weakness in Black’s position that most miss… And this idea can give your opponent SERIOUS headaches as early as the 8th move!

Smash the Slav and Queen’s Gambit Setups!

With a simple (and deadly) attack!

First, place your pieces on the right squares. Then, thrust your pawn to e4. And, finally, blast open the kingside with h4-h5!

The entire plan is thoroughly explained.
