To all and without the hollow ring

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all. May God bless and keep you all well.
There is no hollow ring of insincerity when I say "God bless you."

Merry Christmas to everyone ! Lets hope next year will be easy, better, and more excited for all of us. All after all, I consider this year, 2005, one of the best years in checkers in decade !

In position on picture white has to jump (20-11), and I don't understand why this boy try to touch a piece on 21 :lol: After trade white can win a man by 24-19, however ... red have some positional compensation.
I am playing checkers, not chess.

kids checker picture

Postby rich beckwith on Sat Dec 24, 2005 10:45 am

Mr. Alex has made a good observation that is all too common with "amateur" checker playing kids today. From exhibitions I have done, it seems the majority of kids don't understand that taking their jumps is required by the rules. In fact, many kids seem surprised when I explain this rule (or think I am emphasizing rule to give myself a personal advantage). Checkers without forced jumps seems pointless to me, as there is no fear of walking onto a shot (since one may simply refuse to jump and avoid the penalty).

Yes, Merry Christmas to all!
