  1. I watched this video and won my first 10 games I can't believe how effective this opening is thanks so much I'm looking forward to watching more of your videos 👍

  2. not e3 because after knight f6 black has 5-4 at attacking squares in center so he has more force in center, i always make the move knight f3 not e3..:)) with e3 the score between black and white becomes equal 5-5 but with knight f3 white has 6 to 5 and even black push c5 white will answer with c3 and white will have the score 7-5 so white will mantain control of center (d4e4d5e5)

  3. What is the best opening/move after 1. d4 c5 2. e3 cxd4 ? Is e3 not advisable?

  4. Gotham or anybody what’s a good website for more analysis for free?

  5. Brother What To do if opponent do not castle

  7. Some players counter the London good while others ..well they make mistakes and give opportunities to advance my pieces

  8. Is it possible to play London system with black pieces?

  14. This is just sooo nice explained. I learned a lot

  15. I just want to say, I have watched this video like 4 times in a row to study the theory. I have been KILLING it with the London since. Probably about a 75% rate when i use it.

    (Yes obviously i am kidding)

  21. Brand new to chess. What if black plays c5, white plays c3, then black takes c4?

  22. Bro thinks he Gotham 💀☠️☠️💀

  23. What if they don't Castello, alt of this system seems to work based on them castleing

  24. Believe it or not but I use this video to fall asleep every night

  25. How do you respond to black knight to e4? I'm sure it's obvious, but it happened to me and messed up my whole system.

  26. There are a lot of good players out there. No so many good teachers. You are both. Thank you for sharing your knowledge in a learnable way.

  27. alright i always play the London system and i will keep trying to avoid those mistakes when i’m playing

  29. 1. d4 Nc6
    is there a way to still do the london like this?

  30. Can someone explain c7 at 5:46 where is the discovered attack i cant see it

  31. As a London player myself, I wonder why I didn't find this video any earlier 🙁 This is so useful. Thank you Levy as always.
