The Wyllie vs Martins game that was played 28 times in their 1863 WCM has an opening that is different than
what is generally presented, including the link in my second post on this topic! The opening that is generally presented
is from the trunk Glasgow game in Lees' Guide
. This diverges from actual play on black's third move, and converges with
actual play on black's 10th move. So the position is the same after black's tenth move and the moves in Lees' Guide and
the actual game are the same after that. In Lees' Guide
first edition 1892 the
Wyllie vs Martins game is Var. 4.
In More Memorable Checkers Matches
Jim Loy presents the actual order of moves from Martins' notebook in the
Cleveland Public Library:
1. 11-15 23-19, 2. 8-11 22-17, 3. 9-14 25-22, 4. 11-16 24-20, 5. 16x23 27x18x11, 6. 7x16 20x11,
7. 3-7 28-24, 8. 7x16 24-20, 9. 6-19 29-25, 10. 4-8
The position now is the same whether from Lees' Guide
or the actual moves.
