Fred Reinfeld in his concise guide How To Win At Checkers covers the first six moves of the
Glasgow Opening with the usual 1. 11-15 23-19, 2. 8-11 22-17, 3. 11-16 24-20, 4. 16x23 27x18x11,
5. 7x16 20x11, 6. 3-7 28-24.
But for white's sixth move he writes: The alternative 11-8 is also playable.
The Glasgow Opening is covered on pages 59-61 of the electronic edition of Fred Reinfeld's checkers book.

12-16 17-14 17. 16-20 14-10 {loses} 18. 19-24
{18-23 wins. I looked at the winning 18-23 first and for a long time. I thought at the time of the game it was a win. I then started checking other variations and then found this trad without fully reviewing it. I had spent a lot of time on the 18-23 so I thought this would improve my play but I was seriously wrong.}
