  1. Quebec, Canada. I have played e4 openings for a very long time. Lately I've been turning to new openings to help get through the endless winter here! 🥶 Basically, I like the London system, because the pieces seem to have more freedom than usual for me. Also, the black bishop helps defend the kingside early, which has always been a little bit of concerned for me. Now, let's gain experience with this! Thanks!

  2. Just a recommendation. As a beginner, I really appreciate your videos. One thing though. Providing timestamps to videos like this where you explain numerous strageies to defend against certain attack would be great.

  3. Pakistan, i have a chess tornament tonight, and have rating under 600😅, more than openings, I'm getting familiar with tactics along the openings, im 20 😋😋

  4. how does the technique change when im playing black

  5. I don't know if I would long castle on the Queen side If I wasn't Irish and I figure I can just about swim back to Clair or Cork in a pinch But I like the London so far. I wonder what an apartment goes for there…. Okay, My humor is a little different. I dont' want to confuse you my Mary Riley and James Griffin got the hell out of southern Ireland and I grew up in western New York. But I wonder why if you came that far why you would stop in Western New York. Only reason they would like the cold is TB. My father said some cousin lived out on the porch cuz they liked the cold and the other cure for TB with kids was to keep them a little drunk for like a couple of years and they would 50 -50 chance kick it. I live in California. You asked where I was from I just threw in a little extra… lol Anyway, I like your show.

  6. Love your courses! Checking in from the U.S.!

  7. What would be good strategies to avoid effective enemy counters?

  8. Me after watching Nepo vs Ding: 👀👀👀👀👀👀👀

  9. Wotton, Quebec, Canada !!! Thanks for the motivation, you are doing a great coaching job for people that are getting back to the game after 30 years ❤

  10. I am in Tacoma, Washington…your show has improved my game… I am coming back to study chess after 20 years. I've never played in a live tournament.

  11. The chess app I'm using ALWAYS plays the London at the higher levels 🙄

  12. My issue with a lot of openings videos in the world of chess is that nobody really looks at them from black's perspective. I would love to see different lines that black can respond with.

  13. I'm watching from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

  14. Best London video out there. You are an awesome teacher Levy!

  15. Is there a good method to remember all the variations? I don't seem able to do it and it's bumming me out as I get thrown off by unexpected moves where I don't know whether to continue developing how I intended. I certainly can't switch openings midway, not consciously anyway lol. I end up going into panic mode.

    Thanks for this video. After watching this and your D-4 ratings climb, I have been a frequent London user.
    Between this and the Caro-Kann videos, I have climbed from 700 to 1,000 in the past 3 months.

  17. Hungary budapest i love youre videos. They help so much

  18. Salem’s Lot, Maine! Well, it’s a fictional town, but I’m where it’s described as being in the Stephen King novel anyway.

  19. Riverside, CA. Does the london work the same if you’re starting black?

  20. I am watching from ethiopia and do you recommend that for beginners to play london opening

  21. Well explained…I had a long spell a few year back playing the London as often as I was allowed and had a good plus score with it at my level…after this little refresher I'm ready to launch the London for another assault..coming at ya from NE England..😀
