You might be a hustler, but your playing against a shark here. I'm going to call your bluff because you just haven't got Great Thrift.

Consider yourself lucky to get off with only a light trepanning, you won't be so lucky next time.

I'm calling the Hohenzoller ruling on this play and countering with Morden.

I see that since the previous chugger we have digressed. The format you are playing should really allow for a 'Northern shuffle' which a previous poster attempted and was consequently rebuffed.

I would draw your attention the the book 'MC Hammer and the methodology of interfactualisation' - R.A.A.P. Press 1985. The most recent edition allows one move in 5 to be as far North as Glasgow due to the North/South divide being brought into political debate.

I will not enter a move in protest at the unfair reatment of said 'partkaree' who attempted this.


regards,

Mike

Dear Mike,
 Prussian rules allows for 'Northern Shuffle' manouvering under the 'Lebensraum' principle, [The whole ethos of the 'Prussian' game revolves around the use of'Nacht und Nebel' strategic positioning] ,but you, alas, have fallen for one of the most insidious politically inspired attempts to codify the game for commercial gain since the 'Zinoviev Letter' Affair.
  If you refer to the Court of Enquirey report on the infamous 'Patagonian' game between MC Hammer and Janet Street Porter, [ Held in the Ambergris Baccarat Room of the Wigan Casino], you will see how MC Hammer's 'Advisors' were shown to be sending encyphered messages through the selective use of differentially flavoured yoghurts. The 'Moon-Walking, Body-Popping' antics of Michael Jackson as he delivered the yoghurts was not done to 'entertain' the spectators, but to 'Semaphore' additional instructions to MC Hammer as to the intentions of the 'Advisors' [All 'Former' C.I.A. 'Operatives'.] as to how the game should progress.

This was not done in response to the 'North/South Divide' but as an attempt to settle the 'Schlesswig-Holstein' question once and for all in favour of the 'Anne Randian position'. [An East versus West divide].
 
The failure of this plot and its uncovering was so cleverly parodied by 'The Village People'in the video to the song 'Y.M.C.A.'["Why M.C./ C.I.A.?"]
Fortunately, the plot was uncovered by members of the Wigan [Provisional] Womens Institute who were providing the catering for the event and their suspicions were passed on to Mike Harding, the official Adjudicator in Attendance.
 
BTW Unfair 'Reatment' of a 'Partkaree' is totally above board and acceptable within 7 moves, by any player, once Lancaster Gate has been triangulated according to the formula [ H2xSO{4}/ R2D2/NE1-4T ].
 
This equation was first formulated by Nicholai Ivanovich Lobatchevsky in 1886 but not conclusivley proven until 1953 by T. Lehrer et al [M.I.T.] through the use of the I.B.M. computer F.U.N.E.X.

I hope this helps clarify things for you. Mick.

I have watched your little skirmish with some hilarity.
Although the manouvering has been stoic in it's approach, the references to 'bugger' being most edifying, you have both singularly failed to notice the obvious countermove that is ..

West Brompton

I don't believe that this move has been played for many years and is therefore one of the backwaters of the Old Eatonian plays dating to the pre-war era.

I hope it will prove an interesting ploy on my account.

Dear Marshon,
 it is rather refreshing to see someone from the 'Old School' coming into the game with a move which, in its day was considered to be quite radical. [Old Etonians tended to view any move beyond the confines of 'The City','Kensington and Chelsea' and 'Russell Square' as being "Radical" and only a 'Parvenue' would dream of going 'South of the River'.{An attitude still held by Taxi Drivers,(They are such 'snobs')}.

Unfortunately, with the post-war legalisation of the Bare-Knuckle/Cage Fighting game, such a move will now find you placing yourself "En Crouette" with the responce move of MORDEN.  [ I think it only fair to remind you that attempting a 'Cheyne Walk' whilst IMPERIAL WHARF is 'Hors de Combat' can only lead to a ' Clapham Injunction' and you wouldn't want that, would you?]

Mick.

Gloat away for what it's worth. Attempting a Heisenburg Discontinuity [NOT to be confused with the 'Uncertainty Principle']  without first determining the 'sidereal time' when measuring the Hypotenuese, {allowing for a base-line shift of +/- 0.2 millibars} will leave you open to a counter-play of WALTHAMSTOW CENTRAL as Henry Kissinger found, to his cost, in the Chepstow Invitational game he played against Betty Boothroyd.  [He made the mistake of opting for the Prussian rules game as it suited his style of expantionist long play, thinking that it would be too 'European' for a 'British/ Traditionalist' game-player. He had only studied the Southern Metropolitan/Suburbian School of play and consequently, knew nothing of the Lancashire/Yorkshire 'Twixt t' pit 'nd moor' game. He was conclusively 'Scheimpflugged' by Betty's 'Kesselschlacht' [ In other words , he was 'Hot-Potted' ].

Perhaps he meant he was doing the Worcester Walk. A well known and oft maligned branch of the Ministry of Silly Walks, along with the Whitehall Shuffle.
I can see him now, waddling up the Mall towards the paradise of all Civil Servants.

But I digress. I counter your WALTHAMSTOW CENTRAL with 

Cannon Street

I was going to play Caladonian Road and Barnsbury for a triple word score, but felt that at this stage of the game there seems to be a great deal of confusion as to the short term tactical implications that would have imposed on the others.

Short term tactical implications for the other players?  Nonsense! The opening of the D.L.R. has had a profound effect on the game as you well know.

Pre-D.L.R., playing C.R.&B for 3ws would have impacted on players whose game style favours N.H.G., N.C.G., T.C.R. or H.O.T.H., F.R.&.F., usage for the factorial benefits of 3+4ws.

Try that sort of a play now and you can run into a lot of trouble if L.C.A. and K.G.V. are live, [as they currently are] , plus your I.M.C.G.M. status would be torn to shreads by a players response of C.S.F.M.G. or even worse, C.H.F.E/C. L.

I'll counter your bluff with WILLESDEN JUNCTION.
