Notting Hill Gate is a fine move! I bit assertive for such an early move, but very good nontheless. I think I'll play a safety move here;

Indeed! Often used in the 'Trumpington Variations' rules. But you obviously didn't see...

Fulham Broadway

which will effectively stop your counter-attack.

Ah well done! You win!

That was an excellent move. Didn't see it coming.

Would you like to start a new game?
