Hmm, the Angel Delight thrown up there by Reuters77 is most interesting... Perhaps even a deliberate ploy to encourage fellow players to venture with the All Saints Hook, as deployed by the great Capt. Balducci....

However, I shall steer clear of such a pitfall, instead making headway, and abiding to the suggestion put forth in the Edinburgh Tavern Meeting of 97.

I give you Goodge Street

Well, with Turnpike Lane now in use, I can initiate the 10 step program... The key to this, of course, being that I not telegraph my moves in any way... Making sure they are a complete surprise...

So, whilst the expected move may take me out towards Canary Wharf, I shall instead opt for the lesser known route, to be found in the 1976 MC almanac.

I submit to the board: Chalfont & Latimer

Great use of Murgatroyd's Reversal, Mr North. Additional sub velocities generated by judicious use of a Speke Easy Over to

and a prim and proper bow leads me to the ever popular Royal Oak, where I shall also enact the wigwam effect onto any further reversals.

Reversals?? I think you severely underestimate the standard of play here M.O.T.N.

I shall employ the (sadly) rarely used Alpine Manouevre to get to

no, no, you take me wrong RC, i do not underestimate, I merely have noticed that reversals occur, so wished to add an underused exponent upon them.

And your Alpine Manouevre is simply expert.

I shall take the downward spiral induced by such a move, and move towards Totteridge & Whetstone

Lofty Wiggs Crewe cut allows me to play:

Bond Street

However, it is immediately obvious that a careless response will lead to open play with MC in five or less.

well, wanting to avoid any careless responses on my part...


I am, in fact, going to reminisce some childhood tv moments, and take a trip to Grange Hill, however, the avid fans will know, that with the Simpkins Approach Play, the MC prospect still looms should the right attempts be made.

A standard of play such as is rarely seen these days! It's truly backwards and forwards tennis like stuff, isn't it?

If you'll allow me a slide across the great river, then for Thursday's opening move from me it's Borough

And I shall counter that deft attempt at a Nabi Gambit with the little used (and oft underestimated) Casey Reboubt. Pimlico

As it's lunch time, anybody mind if I play through?

If I take my left shoe off and hop around the office in a clockwise fashion whilst holding a feather between my little- and forefingers, I do believe that Schanster comes into play, eliminating knid and banishing any Circle Line moves as being in contravention of Article 6, subsection III, para 14(a) of the elongated version of MacWarie Rules (coming into play, as they do, dring the run up to All Saints Day). That of course means a move directly to Dollis Hill without passing go and collecting the 200 pund fare dodging penalty and puts the player in a state of shazbat.

Ergo, my play is Oxford Circus

Anybody fancy playing a round in Urdu after this one's completed? I dunno if my confuser will let me but I do reckon I could master some of the charcters on my Etch-a-Sketch...

Not wanting to be left out of what seems a particularly enjoyable pastime, Im now stood in the middle of the room, mimicking the now famous 'Flamingo Shot', as perfected by Kevin Pietersen. This, of course, should only be dared by those suitably attired in full cricket whites [a happy coincidence] and enable the Grace Gambit to be played in it's barrel chested entirety.

I give you Oval

A player of the white flannels eh.
