Note E in America's Best Checkers says 27-24, 3-7, 32-27 etc wins (Tinsley). This is too much for my analytical resources. Where's the win?

R. Fortman, in Elam's Checker Board, Mar. 1957, p.3362, said this:
27-24 3-7 32-27 is given to win by Tinsley with no continuation. Continue 9-13 (as played by Tom Colston vs. the writer in the recent U.S. vs. Great Britain team match) and we will appreciate seeing the white win!

It's strong for White, but I haven't found a WW. Here is the Colston - Fortman game:

[Event "US vs. GB Mail Match 1956"]
[Black "Colston, T."]
[White "Fortman R.L."]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 10-14 24-20 2. 14-18 23x14 3. 9x18 22x15 4. 11x18 21-17 5. 8-11 28-24 6. 5-9 17-14 7. 1-5 24-19 8. 11-16 20x11 9. 7x23 26x19 10. 4-8 27-24 11. 3-7 32-27 12. 9-13 24-20 13. 13-17 19-15 14. 17-21 31-26 15. 6-9 26-23 16. 7-11 14-10 17. 9-14 10-7 18. 5-9 15-10 19. 11-15 7-3 20. 15-19 23x16 21. 12x19 3x12 22. 18-22 25x18 23. 14x32 30-26 24. 32-27 29-25 25. 21x30 12-8 26. 30x23 10-7 27. 2x11 8x31 1/2-1/2

I'll have a look at this later. Thank you for the research.

"Etc" is such a useful abbreviation - "the proof is left as an exercise to the reader".
