It is difficult to understand how the same mistake in the analysis of Kovacevic-Ree from the previous London System DVD by Simon Williams is repeated in this DVD. 11. Bxh7+ does not win for white. After 11. Kxht; 12. Qh5+ Kg8; 13. Nf3 Ba6; 14. Rd1 Blacks draws with 14. ... Re8; 15. Ng5 Nf8; 16. Qf7+ Kh8. The best move is not 11. Bxh7+ but 11. Nf3
