The London System begins with 1.d4, with an early Bf4, pawns on d4/e3, often with c3/c4, Bd3, Nbd2 and Ngf3. In this game, we see Kasparov at his positional best, which illustrates the role and influence of the London Bishop on the h2-b8 diagonal. We also see the Bd2/c3 line, with its thematic Queenside pawn expansion, whilst black struggles to find effective counter play.
