      No, that would have been a Phalange ruling. I think the Aswan perfunctory is still in play.

      Does that automatically suspend him for three moves?

      Sorry, but under the Rees-Mogg amendment (1749), you can't play that on an even numbered turn before noon.

      In which case, Oval

      That sets me up nicely for the Clapham interchange variation .

      The key to winning is now to devise a strategy which maximises your possible pay off F(n). If the pay off does not depend upon n, then your best strategy is to call "Mornington Crescent" on your first move. But this is far from the actual case. Instead F(n) increases as n increases, and this alters your strategy.

      As an example, consider the case where F(n) doubles with each turn. (We will continue to use this example for the rest of this post.) Now let's suppose that we have a two-player game and it is your turn. You could say "Mornington Crescent" and you would win with a certain pay off. If, however, you DON'T say "Mornington Crescent", and (crucially) your opponent also doesn't say it on their turn, then your pay off has increased four-fold if you say it on your next turn. Thus you have signifcantly increased your winnings, with of course the risk that your opponent will say "Mornington Crescent" on their turn.
