Of course; I did not claim the posted version as "'only|sole|last' one variation" (but "a variation").

Problem with your first variation -- for that matter, any other code in which things are aligned along the columns -- is that aligning commas for short varaibles like "luck" is too much effort. (Second one is just ridiculous overkill.)

(I was hoping not to contribute anything (as I do not have much to say about brain d foy's points) but I was suckered in anyway.)

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Actually you did. A slight change from "There is one more variation" to "Here is one more variation" conveys your intended meaning.
