If you’re looking for a super simple system to play with White, perhaps the simplest of any openings, then the Jobava London System is the must-buy DVD for your repertoire!

Your first three moves will follow the line 1.d4, 2.Nc3 and 3.Bf4; Black has few concrete setups to play against this. The London System is renowned by club players for requiring minimal preparation against openings such as the King’s Indian Defence, Grunfeld, Nimzo, Benko, Benoni, Budapest Gambit… the list goes on!

The Jobava London System is perfect for both the club player and GMs alike. Names such as Carlsen, Aronian, Rapport, and of course Baadur Jobava are now playing this exciting and attacking opening regularly.

Presented in the Double Tuition format, your hosts are GM Simon Williams and Blair “Switcheroo” Connell.

Reviews From Real Customers

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Brilliant course – “It was very comprehensive and provided me everything I need to know to go off and play the Jobava London System. And it was very entertaining. Simon and Blair make a great team and made watching the DVD fun. I was actually sad when I got to the end of it. I’m from the US and I love their accents. If I ever get to the U.K. I would love to buy them both a beer or two or free or four :)” – John Wood – March 2021

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great job! – “Simple and clear. If you’re looking for an opening to widen your repertoire, or to just have fun (a lot of fun!) this is the right place. The double tutor approach to the course is very effective. For such a new system, theory is changing quite fast, therefore the analysis cannot be complete. As an improvement suggestion, the pgn could contain more deep analysis, and cover variations not touched in the video. An update, with the latest developments, would be welcomed (maybe with a discount for those who have bought the course). Keep up the good work! – Francesco Carriero – March 2021
