2008 IL 9-13 24-20 5-9

Postby Michael Holmes on Tue Apr 08, 2008 10:19 pm

I am submitting the following game as my most satisfied draw from the tournament. Chuck played 10-14 on the first game and we had a long, hard draw that followed. Although the play I used was not standard he navigated through it. I realized that this should be a turning point in the tournament and I was hoping to win a game and now with just the weak side I needed to shore up a win to grab first place for the moment(what I did not know was that Alex wasy busy getting 4 points while I was busy getting 2 points-and I never saw first place again :( ). Well, it almost came back to haunt me as Chuck stayed on the attack until the ending.

Hello Michael,

The 1-5 move is not new as L. A. Freeman used it in 1937 National tourney against E. Fuller and lost and Willie Ryan also used this same move in same tourney against N. H. Rubin and lost. In the 1958 National tourney, H. Scheibman used this move against V. Ricciuti and lost but in the 1972 National ty., E. Fuller made this move and drew against H. Cravens from Texas.

All the best,
Mac

Also, in the 8th IM book Balderson vs. Holmes in a side note. Can you send the play from the Cravens game. The computer shows my game as a sound game so I am not interested in the two losses but the Cravens game should be of value.
Thanks,
Michael

Fuller's annotations mention play by J. Clayton in the Feb. 1951 issue of California Checker Chatter.
