  1. 21:38 "And the next person I'm playing is actually my lamp."

    Comedy gold.

  2. Levy this is the best content on YouTube!!! You're amazing!!

  3. can someone explain to me what he did at 26:35 when he took the knight off the board with his own queen?

  4. Can someone explain 5:48, please? Doesn't this just give black a free pawn and leave an undefended bishop? I know I'm missing something but I don't know what.

  5. Can someone please explain to me why at 26:19 black wouldn't just trade off his bishop or knight with white's knight??

  6. hi levy i just made 4 queens and had my starter queen left against the 1600 bot thank you very much i will still abort any games my opponent plays d4 but now i will play d4 myself thank you!

  7. 5:46 What discovered attack is there after C7? Isn't Qxc7 a loos of pawn?

  8. I just smashed the 1600 computer opponent for the first time ever using this for the first time. It's so good!

  9. Dude I heard the " jobava style london " as "alibaba style london" I was thinking chess playes named it becues of the hores, there is a lot of indians in London so i thought that is good name XD

  10. im so confused about 5:48 why is pushing the pon good u literally lose a pon

  11. watched your video and still get fucked. thanks

  12. Thanks Edward.
    Only 10 minutes in but I'm going to go and try; most likely fail and watch the rest later.
    Cheers again Mr. Snowden.

  13. I’m so glad I found this. Definitely a great opening. This helped me win a few games against a people above my rating recently. Thank you for the breakdown!

  14. I hate when he shows something like "nasty trap" and instead of explaining till the end he says "and that's it, game is over" and I'm sitting here like "wtf is happening, why game is over"

  15. Ty so much Gotham I used to be 300 elo but now I’m 500!!!

  16. Is there a video on the London system for 1500-2000 rated players?

  17. It's called the London system because it's literal hell to play against

  18. Just used the technic and I won!!!! Very good content

  19. I mean this openning i watched i learned and i lost

  20. Thanks for doing this London system. It really work

  21. Trying to learn London. Playing Fritz 8 – 1. d4 Nf6 2. Bf4 Nd5 3. ??? Suggestion from here; can only achieve draws.

  22. I have the menu, but man am I bad at ordering what I like

  23. I love going back to this video after playing a bunch of games and see how well I stick with the concepts and principles.

  24. Me stalemating against a 250 bot be like:

  25. Holly shhhh I literally came back to this video after playing several games to hear him say “your not ready yet…people try to play it then come back to the video” LMAO

  26. I’m being serious I’m about 600 on rapid and watching this video made me go from 70% accuracy to a game with 96% thanks so much

  27. If black knight comes to e4 what we can do?

  28. Levy what do you do when the play knight to H5 to threaten your black square bishop….I am a 1400 and I encounter this problem a lot

  29. I literally kept losing to 1200 rated bots consistently and now I finally beat one using your strategy for the system. Great Video! Learned a lot and got my first brilliant move at 900 rated

  30. Can someone explain at around 5:40 he says that you “discover check” the bishop is protecting so I’m confused.

  31. How to play london system with black pieces ?
