Jeremy's 'one strike and you're not out' rises to level of ''new CV.'' But there are little mirrors here and there. This one has Jeremy's ''new idea'' built into it as active case-specific Mutator. You move to take opponent's Queen at the next opportunity. She leaves the threat ignored by minor piece of her Queen, because the moves 8, 9, and 10 are coming up, and you have to exit Pub pieces first, before you can act to take the Queen. The first threat is no threat, not at all, and may be delayed 2 or 3 not only 1 move. Etc.
