Visit Maghisi’s website at http://www.manghisi.it/index3.htm.
Here are the instructions on what to do:
1. Put your mouse on the menu “DAMA” and a submenu appears;
2. Click on “INGLESE”;
3. Click on “Materiale vario" at the bottom of the page.

You can choose either to watch animated games of WTMs, WQTs and Italian tournaments, or download them and watch them offline.

Thank you Sergio for the link.

As well as the World Championship matches there are US National Ty games from 1952 to 2004.
An excellent resource.

Unfortunately for the 2015 WCM Borghetti v Kondlo, I got an error 404 message, but the earlier matches download ok.

There were two 2015 WCM matches:
Moiseyev v Laverty 11 Man Ballot
Borghetti v Kondlo 3 Move

The games were given on the ACF forum under Tournament Discussion heading.
I assume they are still available there.

The PDN files do not open, HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found. The site is missing MIME instruction to treat PDN files as text. This has to be added into the web.config file for example.

Manghisi just fixed the games of 2015 WTM: Borghetti vs Kondlo.
He told me that he will publish the games of the latest 3-move WQT, held in Rome last week.

I don't have any problems. Maybe your browser needs to "refresh" in order to open a new web page.
Anyway, you can ask him the games. Send him an e-mail at g.manghisi@tin.it

Games from the 2016 Italian Open 3 Move Ty are very interesting.
It appears only one side of the 3 Move Openings is allowed in each round.
Unfortunate for whichever player draws the weak side of the opening, and does not get a chance to play with the strong side !

Jake, I was getting the dreaded 404 message earlier, but as of right now I can get the 2015 WCM from Sergio's above link.
I see that the problem is solved, perhaps it was a regional problem. It is good to see the update in the Online Checkers Library!

That is interesting! It might balance out in a 40 game match, especially in two-move restriction with its more balanced openings!

No George, the games you picked up came from my site, our reclusive Spanish expert got them from somewhere, and edited to enable import from PDN.
The PDNs on the Italian site still not accessible.
Many of those PDN came from the ACF site, I just asked Jim Loy who created them and he simply sent me the whole database, I am generating games as we speak.
And I do have one question for the old-timers :) - the 1929 National games are listed in Chicago and Cedar Point - is this the same tournament, can I combine?

I did not say games, I said PDNs, they are located at the bottom of the left column.
PDN is a text-like format to enable exporting and importing games.

BTW, the Online-Museum-Of-Checkers-History.com is not working, are they out?

Jake, I just viewed 4 games on the World Championship Matches of the OCL, two from 2015 and two from 1952. They played just fine.
