New: Elisabeth Pähtz - Attacking with the Jobava London System

12/8/2021 – The Jobava London System, named after the top Georgian player Baadur Jobava, is a side form of the London System, which differs in principle in only one small detail - the white knight is established early on c3. This brings two major advantages. On the one hand, it is possible to castle longside more quickly, and on the other hand, tactical motifs sometimes arise on the queenside. Since the system is still relatively new, there is no need to learn tons of theory.

The "Barry Attack" by Andrew Martin was also brought out recently by CB. Isn't that (roughly) the same system?

The advertising is incorrect, as it states the bishop comes out first, then the Nc3 quickly. However, in the Jobava London system quite the reverse is more accurate and more true, as even the beautiful author states, the Knight goes to c3 first.
