Why didn't Black Sea-Constantinople work? Con couldn't cut the Ankara support on it.
I should have got into Con and Bul, and Bul should be in the Black Sea.

Thanks.

Well, it's now very interesting again. My run for the solo has been pushed back, and with the opposition forces positioning, the chances of me breaking through are negligible. This turn was my last real shot. If I'd guessed right over which to support out of Denmark/Norway and whether to cover Serbia or support Trieste, I'd have made it. Never mind.

Anyway, someone is going to solo this game. I won't agree to any draw - I'm still too p****d off with QoH's NMR at the pivotal moment of my stab - an NMR in a Classicist game which I genuinely believe cost me a solo. With the solo conditions as they are and the number of SCs, that means that there can be no draw unless I'm eliminated, and if I'm eliminated, someone will have soloed.

So who will it be? Someone will overcommit against me at some point and the other will be handed the opportunity to win. Dispassionately, it does look as though Italy is now favourite: I'm completely surrounded and Britain is more exposed against Italy than Italy is against Britain.

Don't worry - this isn't a veiled threat to throw the game in anyone's direction - I've always detested it when people do that, and I'm not likely to start doing that myself! I genuinely think that Italy's chances became better than mine in this last year. Then again, with the way that lotr_freak has played his cards, you'd have to be a fool to write him off. Whatever happens, there's been another twist to the tale and it might be an interesting finale. Game on.
