Main chance isn't a term, just that the two words are commonly put together in sentences. Still, a Google phrase search for "main chance" yields 104,000 entries so fair nuff.

The answer was always going to be a bit blah.

Well I stand corrected and will admit it. The first entry in Google defines Main Chance and the main issue.

Google "water main" and "main chance." It works.

Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! It's my final answer, and I still have all my life-lines!

Will we be notified of the correct answer when it's revealed?
And I still have all my life-lines!

Do you think that there will ever be a true, all agreed resolve for this?

Yes, both you and Conrad came up with right answers. Congratulations. Take a bow, end of story. We'll send you both a coupon to get a Starbuck's coffee for only 5 dollars.

I agree. I can't get a decent regular old cup of coffee in Starbuck's, and I have zero interest in the fancy stuff they have there.

A decent cup of joe from the Waffle House, something like that, now that's coffee.

If it's any consolation Bob, I liked your answer better than the official answer.

You guys have learned the lesson of every game show contestant immemorial. You mean I actually have to take this crap home AND pay taxes on it. :)

Conrad, you were beaten to the punch by jonescrusher so you miss out on the Starbucks coffee, lad. There is no second prize here. Jones pressed the buzzer first!

Apparently main chance is an old term:
Meaning: The most important issue.

Origin: We now use this phrase as part of 'an eye for the main chance', referring to someone who is ambitious and eager to promote their own advancement. The first known use of it in print is in John Lyly's, Euphues, the anatomy of wyt, 1579:

"Either content yourself with my choice, or lette mee stande to the maine chaunce."

Shakespeare used it soon afterwards in Henry VI Part 2, 1597:

WARWICK:
There is a history in all men's lives,
Figuring the nature of the times deceased;
The which observed, a man may prophesy,
With a near aim, of the main chance of things
As yet not come to life, which in their seeds
And weak beginnings lie intreasured.
Such things become the hatch and brood of time;
And by the necessary form of this
King Richard might create a perfect guess
That great Northumberland, then false to him,
Would of that seed grow to a greater falseness;
Which should not find a ground to root upon,
Unless on you.
Kind of obscure, but more valid than I thought.
