Re: Grouping (In/Out) Inferences

I prefer big chains. If you know how to use them, they're much more compact and quicker.

I think this is a useful article in its entirety, but there's a section on linking conditionals in there as well: http://www.top-law-schools.com/conditio ... oning.html.

Yeah, I'm looking at the birds in the forest game.

Powerscore would have me write 8 or 10 inferences.
I can put together two chains that seem a lot more handy (griffon prep has a good chain).

Are there pitfalls with chains?

Not if you know how to use them correctly.

One thing that I do that helps me a ton is to use a T square for local questions with in on the left and out on the right, my course instructor used this method and at first I didn't like it but now I think it is a very efficient way to play the game because your local setup takes almost no time to setup.
