Books by Vladimir Kaplan

Postby CoachMichaelCiamarra on Tue Aug 31, 2010 5:52 pm

Been building up my checker book collection (emphasis on straight checkers but am looking at other variants of the game) and am searching for books by the late Vladimir Kaplan. He wrote extensively and exclusively about pool checkers. Anyone wanting sell their copies of Kaplan books or know whom I may inquire with will be most appreciated!!

Mr. Ciamarra,

There is currently on eBay a copy of Kaplan's Tournament Checkers: An Introduction to Pool Checkers with a buy-it-now price of $63.00 (!) but it also has a make-an-offer option.

It's certainly not cheap or an impulse-buy price (not for me anyway...) but it is hardcover and looks from the photograph to be in good condition; sometimes the seller will accept a pretty low make-an-offer price (and, of course, sometimes not...).

Anyhow, there you have it. Hope this helps.

V/R,

Thank you for the heads up. It is a good book if you want to learn the rudiments of that form of checkers. I already have a copy of this book. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
