    Default conditionals

    I was writing this article and I'd like to check this conditional sentence which I made type 3

    I had no escape but to wait for the next move, because if I had jumped at him and tried to snatch the card he would have had the time to put his threats into action.

    (1) I think that you have written a very nice sentence.

    (2) I would make only a few little changes:

    I had no choice but to wait for his next move, for if I had jumped at him

    and (had) tried to snatch the card, he would have had time to put his

    threats into action.
