Wyllie's "Invincible"

Postby Ed Gilbert on Sat Aug 30, 2008 8:05 am

At the suggestion of Al Lyman, I have put the 10-piece opening book generator to work on Wyllie's famed "invincible" line, 1. 11-15 24-19 2. 15x24 28x19 3. 8-11 22-18 4. 11-16 25-22 5. 16-20 29-25. Although 29-25 is weak, Wyllie used to win many games with this after 6. 10-14 18-15 7. 4-8 22-18 and now his opponents sometimes played 7-10 which loses. Anderson then came up with 7-11 which wins for Black. It has been debated whether 5. .. 29-25 can be drawn at all. Basic Checkers says 6. .. 19-16 "may survive". The book10 play shows that after 29-25 the game is already lost for white. http://pages.prodigy.net/eyg/Checkers/BH_draws.htm
