A Finesse for Black in the London System by FM Dennis Monokroussos
I’ve covered the London System in a number of shows, and in most of them I’ve shown neat finesses that White has used to cause Black some problems. In this video it’s Black who gets the helping hand, thanks to Levon Aronian. Black’s 6th move looks docile at first sight, but it is motivated by a couple of subtle ideas that appear to give Black full equality. In this variation, the ball is back in White’s court.
