Twenty years ago, who would have believed that the London System, the Trompowsky and the Torre Attack would become critical opening systems of the present day ? Yet they suit the modern age perfectly, as the White player doesn't angle for too much out of the opening except a complex position , from which he can outplay his opponent.
At the same time the White position is always solid, almost bomb-proof. Even Magnus Carlsen is playing the London System these days!
These variations can be learned and executed easily by club players and Grandmasters alike and that is why they are so popular
The key is not to panic.
On this all-new Foxy Openings DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin suggests dynamic antidotes to each of these three White weapons. He promises Black a good position every time with an interesting middle game to come.
There is no reason why Black must be afraid of these ideas, as long as he knows his stuff and shows respect.
Yes, queen's pawn systems are very common and so it is time for Black to hit back!
