Have to agree with RC, an absolutely classic move that seems so obvious but yet requires great subtlety to counter without a deadend shunt. So, instead of falling for the oh so obvious Oxford Circus, will play Victoria. Notice how to make this move I have to sacrifice the apparent opportunity that a beginner might think to move to Mornington Cresent in two moves and instead use The Fortescue Covenant Response move. Tricky, and like RC comments on the last move, we are still in a situation where the next player will need care to avoid the dreaded deadend. Interesting stuff folks.

So, my move is Victoria, over to you!
