    in the opeing if white developed bishop to f4 and black has played nf6 is it acceptable to play h6 to stop it being swapped off after white plays e3?

    -should I allow the opening h file early on?
    -or just play bishop g5 instead of f4 and swap the knight off when black tries to kick it?

    many thanks for your help.

    I don't quite follow.A bishop on f4 can swap a knight on f6?You play both colors?
    I don't know the london but if you give a position I'll give you an opinion.For better or worse

    I have been playing the London System(1 d4 2 Nf3 3 Bf4) for over twenty years. In many variations, White will play h3 in order to avoid having his bishop exchanged for a knight after ...Nh5.
