It is a universal system that is worth against almost any response from black to 1 d4, it leads to a very solid scheme and is very popular among club players, but it is also played by great masters such as Kamsky, Jobaba, Rapport, Winants, among Many others.
The book begins with a historical review of the development of the variant, and then in 9 chapters the main lines of the London-Pereyra are studied through 64 complete games analyzed.
The author analyzes and explains solid variants, but also some more risky ones, such as the Pereyra attack, the Barry attack, the Jobava attack, which is fashionable and is a mixture between the London and the Veresov, the Morris gambit or the Vaganian gambit of Trompowsky, which can be reached by transposition.
