Discussion and analysis about a full game.

Canadian Open review.

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Sun Oct 22, 2006 12:24 pm

Originally I planned to annotate slightly here (in forum) some games, but later realized that it is not a proper thing to do, because games are property of Canadian Checkers Association and Leroy Adams wanted to annotate them and sell later.

Finally I decided to give here only elements of game, not a full text, diagrammed them at the most interest moment of game, when someone make mistake. I think this will only raise an interest to the upcoming booklet which Canadian Checkers Association is willing to prepare.

I offered Mr. Leroy Adams my assistance in annotating games and he kindly accepted it !

#1. A. Moiseyev vs A. Millhone, Round 1, G1

White to move

Mr. Millhone played here 25-21? and lost after 10-14 27-24 2-6* etc RW

Instead losing 25-21, draw was available after 27-24* 10-14 23-19* 14-23 19-10 23-27 (or 9-14 24-19 etc Draw) 32-23 28-32 10-6 1-10 5-1 etc Draw

#2. A. Moiseyev vs L. Adams, Round 2, G1

White to move
Image

Surprisingly to me, in this very well known to published play GAYP position, my worthy opponent played losing 24-20? (31-26 is correct) and lost as following: 15-24 28-19 14-18 23-14 9-18 17-14 16-23 14-9 5-14 25-22 18-25 27-11 10-14 etc and red kept a man to the end RW

#3. L, Adams vs A. Moiseyevc Round 2, G2

Red to move
Image

Just right after the game I thought that draw was missing in this game at the earlier stage, however the program proved that red still has a draw in position on diagram #3. In real game Leroy played here 10-15? 19-10 6-15 and lost after 13-9 15-18 24-19 18-27 32-23 12-16 19-12 11-15 20-16 15-18 23-19 18-22 26-23 22-26 12-8 3-12 19-15 etc WW.

In position on diagram draw was still available after:

1-5* 23-18 (or 32-28 11-15 19-16 12-19 23-16 15-18 16-11 etc Draw) 12-16 19-12 10-15 26-23 15-22 24-19 22-25 23-18 25-29 12-8 3-12 19-15 29-25 15-8 7-11 8-3 25-22 Draw!

#4. A. Moiseyev vs E. Morrison, Round 4, G2

White to move
Image

In this position (see diagram #4) white had an easy draw after 32-28 etc, however my opponent was under impression that he should have something more in this game, because earlier I went out of old published play line :lol: In fact, the way I played it and way adopted by published play are equally good.

Mr. Earl Morrison played here 27-24? (weak but not losing yet) 31-27 23-19 ?? 27-23 and only here he realised that 19-16 loses after 23-18 16-7 14-17.

In fact after 31-27 white still has a draw 6-2 27-18 2-7* (not 2-6* 18-22 6-8 3-12 and Red Wins)

Another (first) game with new Canadian Champion Earl Morriosn, was also very interesting, and even using the program I still can't find where he made a "last mistake" ! I decided to leave the game out of this topic and if you are interesting - you can buy Canadian Open 2006 booklet when it will be available to public.

Respectfully,
