Ms Becky, this has gone far enough.Lindus called for a truce, and i think it would be good if you would take that advise.Lindus is well loved and a great member of this checker community.He also contributes his great learning and knowledge to all of us, and i have the greatest respect for him.Please finish this now,weve all said our piece, and its getting stale, time to get on with more important things. regards jan

Hello Mr. Alex:

I appreciate you posting this fine problem in a 'troubled area' of the forum.......................... It would be nice to see all adverse postings vanish from our ACF Forum.

Remember that the BBS is now operational again and that is the perfect place to vent anger and to take 'jabs' at one another. The goal of the ACF Forum is for discussion of Checker/Draught related items, diagrams and discussion on lines of play,etc.

Sincerely:
Alan Millhone, President

Love this Alex :) Nothing like a checkers position post to make the air clean again to breathe.

This Becky and Alex seems a pair of nuts to me. Such sick posts all the time.

I think this is called "1st position." It's only a win for white if white has the move, so, if it was red's move it is a draw.


20-16 32-28 16-11 28-32 11-7 32-27 7-3 27-32 3-8 32-28 8-11 28-32 11-15 32-28 15-18 28-32 18-23 32-28 23-27 28-32 19-23. Then there's 2 ways from here I think

1: 12-16 27-24 16-20 24-28 ww

2: 32-28 27-32 28-24 23-18(I've moved 32-28 there many times and 24-19 will draw!) 24-19 32-28 12-16 28-32 19-24 18-15 16-20 15-18 19-24 32-28 19-16 18-23 16-11 23-19 11-8 28-32 8-11 32-27 11-8 23-27 8-12 23-18 12-8 18-15 8-12 15-11 ww
