The great MFT

A very interesting article about MFT and Chinook in The Atlantic (19th July 2017).

Note: the quotation attributed to Derek Oldbury is most definitely not by him however! (Anthony Bishop?)

Good article, I first read it when Ryan Pronk linked it on his FB Page.

--George Hay

The quotetation:

Derek Oldbury, probably the second best player of all time, wrote an encyclopedia of checkers. It was effusive in its praise for the master: “Marion Tinsley is to checkers what Leonardo da Vinci was to science, what Michelangelo was to art and what Beethoven was to music.”
