I know when I look at the picture of the action for the "Mammoth Upright" that it is unplayable because of inertia. It is certainly a tour-de-force of mechanical ingenuity on Mr. Chernobieffs part. I know Chris is an exceptional mechanic, c

"Long repeat" means any more than 8-12 measures, as far as I know. Yes, it seems odd to skip exposition repeats, but it's conventionally done in adjudications and competitions -- they aren't really performances, and you have a time limit.
