London System vs King's Indian

  • 1. d4 Ng8f6 2. Ng1f3 g6 3. Bc1f4 Bf8g7 4. e3 d6
    The standard continuation for this opening here is 5.Be2 then both sides castle
    • 5. c4
      But we are not standard players
      • 5... Nf6h5 6. Bf4g5 h6 7. Bg5h4 g5 8. Nf3d2 Nh5f6 9. Bh4g3 Bc8f5 10. f3 Bf5g6
        I often like to have both Bishops "fianchetto'd" on the same side like this, but usually on the Queen side
        • 11. Nb1c3 c6 12. Ra1c1 Nb8d7
          I also like to keep my opponent guessing where I will be castling my King.... makes for some interesting games

            Just aiming to open the centre up, however White may be gaining tempo with 15.dxc5 Nxc5 16.Nxc5 Qxc5 17.Qa4+
            • 15. Bg3f2 O-O 16. e5
              ? Continued neglect of piece development will soon cost White... 16.Be2 (as per move 5) was better
              • 16... dxe5 17. dxe5
                ? This can simply be taken, whereas dxc5 could not... now the e-file has been fully opened at the White King's peril
                • 17... Nd7xe5 18. Bf2xc5
                  (note, if instead Nxc5 then Qxb2 is good)
                  • 18... Qb6e6 19. Ke1f2 Ra8d8
                    Always wise to bring all available resources into an attack
                    • 20. Qd1e1 Bg6d3
                      White cannot capture due to the Knight fork
