Ingen åpning har eksplodert i interesse som London-systemet. Det merkes nå på litteraturen, og her er første bok skrevet av en (eks)verdensstjerne. Vinklingen fra svarts side gjør den ikke mindre viktig også for hvitspillere.

Den interessante starten av Georgievs forord:

Are you still curious what are the best openings for White? I have an answer for you: almost any normal development! At depth 50, modern engines evaluate most main lines as 0.00! Suppose that I want to build a repertoire against the Slav. I have tried everything against it and I assure you that the Meran is 0.00. I have also tested the Botvinnik Variation. The most principled lines follow a very narrow path, reaching 0.00 well after move 40. The same applies to the Queen’s Gambit etc.

Thus any strong player faces the same question before every White game: how to throw the opponent out of his home preparation as early as possible without crossing the red line? Sharp openings mean more narrow paths, therefore less to memorise. Even a master would be able to hold to a draw a super GM in the Botvinnik.

Lately the chess elite solves the problem by adopting the following anti-computer strategy: they choose openings without narrow paths. The more candidate-moves of equal worth on every split, the better! Nobody can memorise at home a variation tree with a huge crown of branches. Even better would be to find systems where the computer tends to underestimate White’s chances. One of the most serious candidates for the title “Opening of the future” is the London System ...

Forlagets egen omtale:

This book presents a Black repertoire against the opening hit of the year – the London System, which arises after 1.d4 d5 2.Bf4. The author also covers various move orders with 2.Nf3 or 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 c5. Kiril Georgiev analyses several different set-ups for Black so the book would be of help to White players, too.

Grandmaster Kiril Georgiev has been the strongest Bulgarian player for many years. He was a Junior World Champion and a bronze medalist in Europe. He has played in 15 Olympiads and also coached Bulgarian national team. His peak rating was in the world's top ten. Kiril has been one of the best blitz players and took the bronze at the first World Blitz Championship in Saint John, having eliminated Kasparov. He wrote the books The Sharpest Sicilian and Squeezing the Gambits.
