9784871877404: How to Be a Winner at Checkers

Checkers is probably the world's best known board game. In America, more than 100 million people have played at least one game of checkers. In England, the game is known as Draughts. There are 150 varieties. In America, most African-Americans play Spanish checkers or “pool”, which features flying kings. In Eastern Europe and Holland, checkers is played on a 10x10 board. In Canada, it is sometimes played on a 12x12 board. This book by Fred Reinfeld is concerned with Go As You Please or GAYP Standard American Checkers. The checkers tactics that add up to a winning game – from that shrewd opening to the last triumphant jump – are all revealed in this book by Fred Reinfeld. Mr. Reinfeld shows how the unsuspected complexity of checkers makes possible subtle strategies that you can turn to your advantage. With his usual clarity, Mr. Reinfeld demonstrates winning tactical play at each stage of the game. He depicts various standard openings (the Glasgow opening, the Souter opening, the Kelso group, etc.) and points out the traps that each affords. He describes the techniques of the mid game, including the “breeches” at the corner block, and numerous three-for-two and two-for-one shots. And he paces out the closing moves of the game - how to make the kill or how to gain a draw against the odds. Mr. Reinfeld's book enables you to enjoy checkers more than ever – both helping you understand the game and by making you a consistent winner.

About the Author:

The author of this book, Fred Reinfeld, is best remembered as the author of chess books. However, he wrote books on many other subjects, such as coin collecting, stamp collecting and paper money collecting. Fred Reinfeld was born on January 27, 1910 in New York. His father was from Poland. His mother was from Romania. Although Fred Reinfeld is now remembered as a writer about chess and other subjects, he was also a strong player. In the 1950 USCF Rating List he was rated number 6 in the United States with a rating of 2593. He defeated Reshevsky twice and Fine once in tournament games and drew World Champion Alekhine in the grandmaster tournament in Pasadena 1932, the strongest tournament ever played in the Western United States. After that, Reinfeld only played in a few other chess events. He spent the rest of his life writing about the game, not playing it. Reinfeld wrote more than one hundred chess books, including “How to be a Winner at Chess”. In his day, almost all young chess players started off on his books. Nowadays, his books are mostly out of print because they were written in descriptive notation. A little known fact is Fred Reinfeld had a real job working in the post office. He did not make his living entirely from chess. Fred Reinfeld died in East Meadow, New York on May 29, 1964.
