Jake, from 3 moves you posted - 2 are correct :lol: Try again. The name for this opening was given by myself and first time appeared in checkers media (ACFB) two years ago.

Regdrds,

10-14 22-17* 11-15. Both look similar after the exchange so it tricked me :D

This time correct ! In fact - Denny Dodger is much more critical opening, and belongs to family 12 new openings added to the official 156-deck only 3 years ago. When I prepared publication about new openings in ACF Bulletin, I decided to name every opening. Most of them already had names, and for this particular one I decided to use "Denny Dodger"

As of today, Richard Pask Compilation is the best source available to study new openings (along with programs openings books).
