No problems with your form if that last move is anything to go by, but one has to chuckle at Mr Chips' last move ... and not just for the seasonal variation (v. clever); if he had only looked more closely at the preceding 2 moves (Totteridge& Whetstone followed by Turnham Green), I am sure he would have realised that by calling a declared Half-Pike (as immortalised by McIlroy in the 1972 European Final), he would have been able to play Gidea Park for extra points and a potential game winner next time.

However, the chance has gone. To be honest, I am a little flumoxed now, but duty calls and I haven't got time for anything too complex, so a standard safe play here:

Uxbridge
