Eric has already thoroughly covered the London System against most of the major systems after 1...d5 and the Queen's Indian. I was wondering if we can expect some more through coverage of the London against the Chigorin (1 d4 d5 2 Bf4 Nc6), the Grunfeld (1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 g6 with ...d5), the King's Indian (1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 g6 with ...d6), the Old Indian (1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 d6), or the Benoni (1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 c5). 


1.d4 d5 2.Bf4 Nc6 3.e3 is slightly better for White - the c6-knight is misplaced and Black cannot achieve an ...e5 advance under favourable circumstances, e.g. 3...e6 4.Bb5!.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 g6 3.e3 Bg7 4.Nf3 d5 should be equal although White can force Black to play fairly accurately to achieve this equality.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 has always been known to be equal - I'm guessing Prie hasn't covered this because there haven't been any major developments since Dembo's 'Fighting the Anti-King's Indians'.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 d6 - hardly anyone over 2500 plays the Old Indian nowadays, which is probably why it hasn't been covered.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 c5 - this is quite interesting and to be fair a game on this would be quite interesting, but after 3.c3 or 3.e3 play will almost invariably transpose to another variation.
  

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