Matty Priest in the 5th ACA tournament moved into the Canalejas shot and won the game when his opponent failed to take the shot and blundered the end game.

The game can be found in Hans "open checkers archive" for anyone who does not have the tournament book. The pdn file can be downloaded from Hans Checkers Animations website
