    Jeremy lives in Balham (Gateway to the South!), and regularly performs in the Streatham Festival. Well, twice anyway, to my knowledge.

    And didn't Monty Python identify the Uri Geller Insititute of Spoonbending as being on Streatham High Road?

    I'm going to start a new Mornington Crescent thread.
    See you over there, fellow players!

    Stovold's is a bit ambiguous on this one. I could resort to the Stamboul shift, but frankly I've never regarded this as a sporting move. So what if
    fall back on Woods's classic response --

    Totteridge and Whetstone ?

    (Sigh) Oh, very well - but wasn't it a dispute over the use of Turley that caused the great rift between Stovold and Warburton?

    As you'll be aware, a Turley entitles the other players to two goes each. I therefore play Hatton Cross and High Barnet.

    Oh no!
    I can't believe I made such a blunder!
    Please may I invoke Turley's Indulgence and have that go again?
    :oops:

    If so, I know I can't do more than find safe haven in

    Queenstown Road.

    I'm aware that I can only do this once.
    In anticipation, thanks, chaps. In the long run I think it's better to keep things going - ?

    I thought about beating a retreat to Morden after that double-fronted assault, but - with crossed fingers - I'll try this:

    Seven Sisters

    (This is better than work...)

    Bah! A Lipstein followed by Acton Town?! Spare me your irony, Moorcock - that was a move Jack Karaquazian would have been proud of! However, I'm not out of the running yet!

    Gunnersbury.

    (Heh heh!)

    Bit tired tonight. I know this is scarcely a stylish play but I'll probably feel a bit sharper tomorrow. So how about

    ACTON TOWN ?

    Ah, but under Lipstein, this is the old Angel, with the north/south platform!
    Your move....

    Hey, he didn't play it!

    Chalk Farm! Entry AND exit, as on weekdays!

    I think S&W's would be acceptable to most of the players here provided that Macpherson's Trilateral Gambit is disallowed as is customary.

    I'm off to bed to allow Steeltsar to catch up. I'd suggest Chalk Farm at this point, but at his own risk.

    Damn! OK, Stovold's and Warburton's it is then.. you sussed me. I thought I had you.
    But I might be bluffing...
    Hang on...

    ANGEL.
    Get out of that one.

    Is it my turn ?
    If so, I'll come back with an admittedly cautious
    BAKER STREET.

    I take it we're using Stovold's and Warburton's as our rule guides ?
