Challenge you call that a challenge. Mr PKB!
I'll have you know, that in the 1976 Namibian away day final.
SRT Playing to GMT time shift rules, via the BUSH telegraph.. Which as you know, had him responding, during the night, whilst others were asleep: he
played a magnificant Seventeen Katzwhanger into Sloane Square.
I shall go next door to
St James Park Westbound.

LordGrumpy, whilst I have no doubt that your play was made in the best intention, I fear that it has lead to some dangerous consequences...
With a westbound St. James' Park, we find that a DH loop is worryingly close, as well as a high Lv%... Sir, this is just reckless!
With that in mind, I propose some rationality, whilst [hopefully] continuing the high level of play that has brought us to this juncture. At the 1993 York Open, I saw a daring ploy set out by the local ombudsman, I was intrigued, fellow players, I give you:

A Borgia Conundrum to Shadwell Westferry, placing in spoon all those who had fried eggs for breakfast.

Muppet of the North

You call my move "reckless". If that is your definition of reckless.....
However whilst frying my egg, [ sunny side down] I decided on Regents Park

One is reminded of a long gone player of this noble joust; who after a heavy session and trousers akimbo, slept it off face down.
That gentlemen, was when he became known to the nobility and learned how: Regents park the bike.

Was that not the late Tarquin Fortesque-Farquahar? One recalls an unfortunate incident with a bicycle pump and a Black Forest Gateau that led to his untimely expulsion from Brown's Hotel and his underwear one summer.

Notting Hill Gate

Notting Hill Gate

Dear me it is frightening to consider the picture, it is similar to a certain beheading event that occurred only today, or maybe yesterday depending on your temporal location. Expulsion by bicycle pump? Frightening indeed. Is it right for us to consider these abominations?

Back to MORNINGTON CRESCENT, that is my move. Am I in the right board?

Gadzooks! You must be kidding! MC? Hahahahahahahahahaha. I'll stop laughing only to wipe a tear from my eye.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! Oh dear.

Compose yourself, panda, people are starting to stare.

It's been a long time since I've had to do this but......
pheeep FOUL!!!

So, from Notting Hill Gate with the wally sent off, I'd propose a shifty shifting shift to Embankment

Now, Mr Twotter or Lord Grumpy (or even Evening Star), I hand this to you on a plate - show 'im 'ow it's done round 'ere. Finesse! Vat's worrits all abaht.

P.K.Bear, I could not agree more. Dash it all kansasw, your ill thought out play, is certainly disallowed.
During the 1947 Tadcaster finals. The impatient North European; Sven Izzitmytern, tried a similiar gambit. Apparrently at his inquisition, he maintained that knowing all the rules, permitted his action.
Naturally The Commitee came down hard and gave him sixty years: draughts, ludo, chess, shuff hapeny and twenty years of noughts and crosses.
If he still breathes and has survived the exile, we may yet have a chance to play him.

Tarquin Fortesque-Farquahar, the very same SRT
Now my serve.
Chesham

Good one sir!
Would have replied earlier, but it seems that according to Mr.Bear it wasnt my turn ah well.

So, served up a Chesham, have we?
Quick forehand volley out towards the left gives the underplayed and underappreciated a chance to shine. Where am I talking about? Why, tis Pinner, of course!

In Mr Kansas' defence, the gambit was very nearly a Flintbarrow Rolling Reversal were it not for the lack of a small technical detail. Boiled eggs are for more suitable as a decoy during the initial maneouvre than the fried variety, holding their shape far longer when confronted with the chainsaw.

Nevertheless...

Gentlemen, Pinner, Uxbridge, West India Quay. What a formidable play, Mr Kansas would do well to pay attention this seldom used but highly regarded play. It defines the very epitome of the Helsinki agreement, and leaves a narrow but volatile trap for the unwary, so by virtue of the Doncaster accord, as ratified by Lord Justice Farqharson in 1923 at Middle Walop assizes leaves us to a commercial back swing to Bank

cessna I applaud your exceedingly adept move. Well done, sir. I feel I must apologise to Mr muppet - I was negligent, sir, in missing your name from the roster and I have asked my wife to beat me severely. She has refused, so I am currently using this fangled interweb to find a nice young lady willing to oblige (for a shilling or two). Amazingly, they're biting my hands off.

Anyhoo, on with the play.

How about a nice Dalston Kingsland to avoid the infamous Jack the Ripper Tidal Dingbat?

Next up?

An obvious choice perhaps but I fancy a dalliance diagonal is called for:

Oh my, just when I thought I was getting the hang of it, I am justly chastised up and down. Contritely I offer Mudchute to Pudding Mill Lane, that seems straightforward if pedestrian, if nobody objects? And retire to study my rulebook until the end of the line.

Ladies and gentlemen, I find the bourgeoise interpretation of the laws you are playing by abhorrent. Marx/Engles would be appalled to see the wonderful example of workers co operative strategy training called Domodedavo Prospekt being manipulated in this way.

To reclaim this round in the name of the people I give you an inverted proletariat to

So, I suggest a twist, Paddington
