This is regarded as one of the best books for the average player ever written. This modern textbook pays particular attention to the many problems confronting the average player. Besides an extensive game collection that shows the best restrictive lines for Black and White (thus reducing study to a minimum) it includes a new method for studying the Mid-Game. This is an enlightening discussion of the major midgame formations and the art of transportation. Many model three move games as played by America's foremost masters with many new lines of play. (Three move restriction is played by all the experts and is fully explained.) Many brilliant endgame themes every player should know. 100 selected problems by America's foremost composers. Latest revised rules for match and tourney play. And numerous other features of interest to all grades of players. The authors were two of Americas foremost Checkerists. Both won numerous titles and important games during their brilliant and checkered careers. - They start the reader off “at scratch” and with patience and understanding take him along the road that ultimately leads to the goal of practically every checker player – the expert class.
