Workshop: London System


Today CCFC Manager and National Master Ian Harris put on a workshop on the increasingly popular London System. The event was well attended and included players from very young talents to experience veterans. The participants enjoyed an informative lecture that featured some of Harris’s own games as well as games from some of the top grandmasters in the world that illustrated key concepts in the opening. Following the lecture, Harris provided them a training position from which the participants had to play from and attempt to figure out the best plan on their own.

The session culminated with a review of the games and question and answer session. Each participant left armed with a new opening to add to their repertoire and a good understanding of some of the subtleties that makes the London System a sometimes unexpectedly aggressive and exciting weapon. Stay tuned for details for similar future events.
