And I agree with Liam - some Derek comments and statements from time to time were provocative and he made them in order to raise people interest and push them to start duscussin and argue ... which is not bad at all !
The most complex game I ever saw and played - GO. I had 1st dan in Russia when I was at age 17-18 but I never worked seriously on this game. This is certainly "game from heaven" and neither 10x10 or chess can be compared with it !
William, you probably have Russian edition of this book, but Mozer - Netherland author !william wrote:I am sure that Alex can elaborate on this fine book as my russian is somewhat limited
Alex_Moiseyev wrote:Liam, it is hard to discuss such serious subject on this forum. Number of ending positions (basic) in Anglo-American Checkers is avbsolutely miserable if we compare it with the same number in 10x10. This number is between 50 and 200 in Draughts and most of them are covered in "Border Classic".
Number of ending positions in 10x10 is several thousand. Ending Encyclopedia in 10x10 by L. Vitoshkin has 6,000 positions - 6 voumes. each about 200 pages.

II am sorry to say, but this is quite obvious fact for anyone who had a chance to play competively and seriouslyy both games.
