You left out the QID setup, which I guess is what most of the "other" votes go for. I voted for it, although when I think about it, I may prefer the KID/Modern if I know my opponent will play the London. The problem is, White might play 3.c4. Undecided

After we decide our favorite way to play against the London System, we can discuss our favorite way to clean mold out of bathroom tile grout.

My favourite antidote to the London System: 1.d4 h6 2.Nf3 g5... Wink

Excluding options that win the f4-bishop, I would say 1...d6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Bf4 Bg7 4.e3 Nd7 when a rapid ...e5 and possibly even ...f5 will give Black a pleasant game.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
