M Barber or M Barker?

Postby Richard Pask on Thu Sep 14, 2017 10:39 am

I know the crossboard player is Mike Barker - he played in the 1988 US Nat Ty.

Game #261 of Complete Checkers quotes a postal game between M Barber and Nigel Proffitt (as given in the 2001 ID Ty Book). My question is: is this correct or is it actually the same Mike Barker?

hi Richard this is Kent Layne from Barbados.His name is Mike Barker also from Barbados.

You can look at my draw Against Sergio in the world quli last year 3 move.Im not a very strong 3 move player like as in go as you please but i was determine not for him to dash me 2-0.

I would not call Mike a cross board player unless he was at that time.

Many thanks! Should there be another edition of CC, this correction will go in.

Richard, what correction ? If you are talking about 32-28 in game #1 - M. Tinsley played this move with Chinook in their 1992 historical match.

BTW. I have a bad memory ... there is a good chance that it was Chinook move, not MFT. Maybe someone can check this in game database ?

Dear Alex,

Relax. My correction refers to the fact that the entry in CC should read 'M Barker' and not 'M Barber'. Nothing more!
