to the presence of a farkle
Top Man for twigging that, bush survivors like Mr Twotter have fallen due to inatentiveness. Tho I have no doubt that SRT WOULD have a cracking escape move, had he been unfortunate.

Does the Double-Boris still require the use of prunes and a colander of eels? One's Cribbits' has been vandalised by the footman in his search for a softer wipe. He shall be horsewhipped on the morrow.

Pulteney? Pulteney?? Where the **** is that? Are we back in South Africa or am I lost again? I'm lost aren't I? I knew that would happen this bloody GPS hand held sodding gadgety thing they sold me doesn't even have half the stations programmed into it and the ones it does have are all in the wrong order or even in the wrong sodding country altogether and now I don't even know where this Pulteney station is and my mobile phone is out of battery and I haven't even got any chocolate with me to help me feel a bit better let alone a chunk of that biltong everyone raves on about nobody will tell me where I am and there aren't any maps here and everyone has disappeared so there's nobody I can ask I knew this was going to happen the minute that upstart invoked the green line interchange diagonals rule and now I have no idea at all what to do ...

Were one of any ranking in the IMCC stakes then one would have surely known several of the current participants of this current bout not only researched and trialled, but also founded the various rules and protocols utilised recently. A little respect please! One appears to have stumbled into the wrong league par-accident.

Are you aware of how many New years eve's Herr Twotter has sacrificed to compiling a stragetic methodology to enable a break from "spoon" on Dollis Hill on New Years day?
Blue Diamond has spent several years translating the works of AArdvark da Vinci's circle line notations (British summer time edition) for our benefit.

One thinks an apology is in order!

Mr Flabber,

It appears you have misunderstood me (or that I didn't make my feelings clear). It was not my intention to imply that players were not of a sufficiently high standard, just that after some very high class MC play the game had momentarily dropped to a level that was not justified given the abilities of the players. It appeared, to me, that people were resting on their laurels and being somewhat lax in their choice of play. I'm glad to see the the standard has risen again and is providing suitably challenging.

I do resent the implication on your part that my play is not of a high standard. I feel that if you were to review this thread you'll find many occasions where I was capable of momentary flashes of genius worthy of the greats themselves. I'll admit to not being the equal of SRT or Lord Grumpy, but I do feel I can hold my own in the current company.


Anyway, without further ado back to the game....

After consultation with Maxwell Beverege's "Comprehensive Mornington Crescent: A Champion Tells All Vol.II" (Birmingham Press, 1989) if Aldwych is revisited exactly 22 moves after first arrival, I can proceed directly to

Thank you flabber & I bid you good day with my most sincere contrafibularities!

My Kandles,

It appears one has not taken into account the effects of the Double-Boris with the inverted variation.

And would appear you have inadvertently taken play to...

Tut, tut, Mr Flabbergasted. You appear to have made an error of magnitude a mere schoolboy would be embarassed to make. While one does not profess to be intimate with all the rules of the game, I do at least try to be familiar with the rules I myself quote.

The Double Boris, particularly in it's inverted guise, cancels itself out under the rules you your good self quoted, the Green Line Interchange Diagonal Rule !

I checked this thrice before transitting onwards to Mornington Crescent.

Do I win a prize or summat?

Under the Krakow Addendum of 1929, I believe Mr Kandles may have a point, provided the Lv was under 27% and he was holding a half eaten bacon buttie in his left hand. Further research will no doubt prove the veracity of that particular ruleset, but in the mean time...

... a Verucca Split Double Haul ...
Thank goodness for that, Rusty. If you'd used the Verruca, a closely related gambit, I'd have said something was afoot.

So, according to the aforementioned regulations, the triangle has been opened up and I now have access to no less than three highly recommended and well-known moves in response ... in the classic style, of course.

Seeing as I don't like any of them, we're moving to ...

Gadzooks! I appear to be making a complete arse of this.
I had, of course, assumed that we were currently navigating using Parker's 1st Principle (Islamic Edition), forbidding use of the left hand for eating said bacon buttie.
I know little and assume too much. Ho hum.

Herr Kandles,

Allow me to congratulate you on such an exquisite gambit.

Truly remarkable.

Mrs Trellis has been informed.

Invoking the third clause of the Sacramento edition of the Bowes handbook and rules, 4th edition, I suggest Goodge Street.
