To be honest, I don't know what the answer is.
This is all the more reason to encourage the brainstorming of ideas in regard to the promotion of Checkers.
several times on this forum, at least 3 or 4, I posted proposal and idea to re-animate and recover mail play from grave - play 4-moves restrictions ladders. NOONE ever yet responded to me, maybe because this was a REAL and CONSTRUCTIVE idea ? And here is an area of your expertize as well known outstanding mail player & analyst and your input is highly wanted, very welcome and appreciated.
I am interesting your opinion about this idea. One of the reason I am doing this and trying to promote this idea - mail players are always pioneers in exploring and developing new play. They did it in front for 3 moves, and finally 12 new barred openings became to arena.
And they can move ahead now !
In other hands, I am absolutely positive that even with having (and using) a strong program, there is still a plenty area for human involve and ONLY program won't help much to be successful.
So ... what do you think ? So far several strong Mail players who is relatively active on this forum - Mac Banks, Tommy Canning, Jim Loy never responded me or add any comments to my proposal.
What do you think about this ?
This is also a question to everyone who reads this and have something to say.
