It's similarity to this one is entertaining, though I don't think
sufficient to warrant calling the Bristol Max a reduction of the
Yorkhsire Royal.

And yes, I heartily agree, Holdsworth's Bristol is of a "darn, I wish
I'd thought of that!" quality. Just too bad about it missing out the
central leads of the plain course, and thus missing all the goodies
therein such as back rounds and 234567890ET1. Oh, well, the price of
simplicity, I suppose.
