Epping Sir - you are mistaken

The Finklestein dissertation on Grieves quite clearly states, and I quote.
“One presumes the The Central Line gambit detailed by Grieves requires an intellectual move such as an elongated float or, on rare occasions, a green belt move such as Epping. However, this is a misconception brought about by an error in the text of the readily available reprinted version of Grieves, where the word not was omitted in error. The correctly worded paragraph is: The leap year restriction does not come into effect and therefore Central Line Gambits are not perilous to the player or team making them”

Finklestein goes on to say “that their use should be actively encouraged but only by seasoned professionals.”

Enough of this
