Thanks Panda K - for that I shall make a simple Edgware Road move.

Hope you aren't suffering too badly this morning....

Cockfosters it is this morning, out in the burbs.

Well if nobody's gonna play, I'll move to Mornington Crescent!

Any challengers?

I'm not entirely sure that is allowed under the Midweek Rules (1957) revision.

I'm currently researching the ammendments and counter rules for clarification on this point - it seems that Stovolds thinks it's Ok, but Farquhar, Ponsonby & Smythe (1973 18th revision) claims it is only allowed when played in the horizontal not the diagonal as you have.

Anyone else care to clarify?

Since this has been my game from the start I therefore declare a foul on panda-k-bear. Cockfosters is still an opening move, we're absolutely nowhere near the endgame yet, we've not been anywhere near Hainault or Newbury Park .

Panda is therefore banned for 5 moves, and the Cockfosters debacle will be completely ignored.

Carry on from Edgeware Road and we'll be thankful for experienced players of the game like Jordan D.

While Jordan is, perhaps, otherwise engaged assembling thoughts and committing them to a paper of the academic variety might I, as a virgin to this pursuit, invoke the Latvian Substitution Protocol and propose a small Kensington thoroughfare by the name of Scarsdale Villas ?

Being an avid spectator but very new player, may I venture Turnham Green again for our return to London play?

He is indeed engaged in academic thoughts, but heard a calling and thus moves direct to Tottenham Court Road.

The Templeton Wainwright Annulment of the 1927 Wexford Protocol has allowed one to include in this chapter of play...

Dear Mr "It's my trainset and you're not playing" Incipient Sinner, I shall assure you that I have been an avid Mornington Crescenter since before you were a twinkle in your father's eye. However, I shall refer you to the Alternate November Protocol of 1937 (the year of my first game) and maintain Cockfosters was a valid move and your striking off illegal.

However, I will be a good sport and follow Vauxhall Cross with Barons Court

Oh and do be careful Mr Sinner - you may well find that we are much closer to that endgame than you think

Oooh, very nice. That was a stylish play. As we're being postmodern, Turnham Green seems a good call.

As its nearly saturday and Im working tres V early in the morn I shall invoke a tremendously brave (for this time of day) tri-linear quasi-lateral 'Janssons temptation' as inaugorated at the fiery MC showdown of the now legendary Stockholm convention of '64.

Shameful behaviour whilst I have been otherwise busy .... I recommend a direct move to Green Park to recover the game!
