London System Club of Lichess

1,833 members
This is a club for all the lichess members who play the London System/London Opening (in any preferred move order), used to play it, or are just a fan who enjoys the ideas and/or move orders in the opening.

It's not a boring, dumb, passive opening- we can make it a very interesting, good, aggressive one! Please give it a try!

Feel free to discuss all kinds of London System related ideas in the forum, just please be KIND, RESPECTFUL, and DON'T personally insult or attack anyone just because of their preferred openings! Thank you! :)
