Notes: (by Ingo Zachos)

(A):
"Abandons the centre, and allows White three attacks. But with 9-14 played as an opening move, none of these are over-powering." (Richard Fortman, "Basic Checkers")
Pask rates it with 38-62, aka a modest white advantage, and classifies it as a "3-move ballott".

(B):
By transposition we have now reached the ballot that is given under 1. 9-14 24-16, 2. 11-16 in Basic Checkers, which Pask gives as 42-58, aka only a slight edge to white.

(C):
Here Basic Checkers gives 4. ... 25-22 as trunk, but 4. ... 26-22 is also mentioned

(D):
This is exatlcy the recommendation given in Basic Checkers, based upon a Tinsley - Hellmann game played at the 1956 US nationals.

(E):
But this is something new. 12. ... 29-25 has been palyed in the game Tinsley - Hellmann and also in a 11982 US nationals game Long -Cravens, that Cravens later lost, though the position is, no doubt, equal.

(F):
The position is now simplified, but quite even.

(G):
Finaally we see a bit of a firework, but only to secure a draw.

----------------------------

Summary:

A waiting game, played along known lines and then continued to simply to a quick draw.
Neat shot at the end, but only to save a draw.
