    Ambitious Repertoire against the London System

     

    img_6784595774_86fdd40023

     

    In this course (based on a group lecture), GM Boris Avrukh builds a reliable and ambitious repertoire for Black against the London System. The foundation of his approach are the setups with ...g7-g6.

    True to his style, Avrukh provides many new and less explored ideas, thus tremendously increasing the practical value of the suggested repertoire.

    The material is divided into 2 parts - a video lecture with a running time of approx.1h and 40 min and 4 theoretical chapters. Additionally, this course includes a Memory Booster. The booster is designed to help you better remember the important points in each chapter. All the testable lines have been carefully selected by our GM team.

    Now, we shall take a brief look at the different chapters.

    Chapter 1 - 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 g6 3.Nc3

    1_3582598_f061c3f95e

    This is one of the most aggressive setups that White has at his disposal. Many players use this move order only against fianchetto set-up. At this point, Avrukh suggests playing 3...d5 with the idea to stop the advance e2-e4. The main line goes 4.e3 Bg7.

    2_8943141_2cf3719150

    At this point, Avrukh examines two main directions for White - 5.Nb5 and 5.h4. In both cases, he demonstrates Black's most ambitious ideas. In many lines, Black can fight for more than simple equality.

    Chapter 2 - 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.Nc3 d5 5.e3 0-0

    9_1605589_81a05ecfd1

    This chapter features White's positional ideas in the systems with Nc3. At this point, Avrukh examines three main approaches - 6.Be2, 6.h3 and 6.Nb5. In all the cases, we reach a strategically complex position where all three results are possible. As usual, Avrukh suggests original concepts as well as a bunch of new ideas.

    Chapter 3 - 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.e3 0-0 5.h3

    4_8375859_d669022783

    This is one of the most flexible setups for White. At this point, suggests starting with 5...c5. The idea of this move order is to avoid the endgame arising after 5...d6 6.c3 c5 7.dxc5 dxc5 8.Qxd8 Rxd8 which is not bad at all but hard to win for Black.

    The main line goes 6.c3 Qb6.

    5_8814838_72d6ae7ed1

    Here, Avrukh examines three main continuations for White - 7.Qc1, 7.Qc2, and 7.Qb3. White's main move is 7.Qb3 when the author suggests the setups based of ...d7-d6 followed by ...Be6. He proves that Black is doing OK in the arising positions.

    Chapter 4 - 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.e3 0-0 5.Be2

    8_6777009_5b4c3bb079

    This is the last setup Avrukh deals with in the current survey. The main focus of his investigation is the position arising after 5...d6 6.0-0 c5 7.c3 Qb6

    7_8842528_d22b28281c

    We have a position that is very similar to the previous chapter. This time, White will try to prove that saving a tempo on h2-h3 is useful for him. Avrukh illustrates that Black is doing great even in this case.
