is a tile of my next book and it stands for "All My Games". This project originally was initiated back to 2006, as soon, as Sixth was published. Due to high volume of information and data, it appears to be a Life Time Project
It's going very slowly for years.
Even in 2002-2003 Mr. Roberto Waldteufel, an author of fine "Wyllie"
checkers program, proposed me to help to process my notebooks & scoresheets and store electronically games. I regret to say that I declined his offer 8 years ago. Today I am still not close to the end of this step !
It is a true to say that in many cases it's a real detective to reconstruct properly the text of games ! Some tournaments are stored in notebooks, other - on scoresheets. There are at least two events where games are stored in two different form of sources ! Sometimes I didn't write the first name of my opponent, and in this case I am using "Mr." instead first initial. Other scoresheets ... don't contain title of event, or round number !
So many memories, so many mistakes and beauties
Today I have stored electronically events in 1996-1999, 2003, 2006-2010. Year 2010 will be cut off date. I anticipate in total, since 1996, 1,800-2,000 games.
All of them will be in chronological order, sometimes slightly annotated, sometimes - more seriously annotated with diagrams. I still have no idea how and when this story with AMG
will be ended. It may take several more years, if I don't give up on this, or this ma take eventually another decade.
Will see ...AMG
will be a "heavvy brick" - many pages, big format and hard cover. There is no way under the sun to earn a penny from checkers - and this book will not be exception
I don't anticipate become a millionare by publishing this book, but want to satisfy my own ambitions.
