Example text

When you think of games of skill, you think of chess, not checkers. Over the past fifty years the checkers community has failed in its attempts to popularize the game among the masses. Perhaps the game is best summed up by a poem written by grandmaster Willie Ryan: 5Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 21,1992. 2. Bottomless Well 35 A Draughts Player's Acrostic C Stands for Competition, The life blood of our game; H Is for the Honor, To justify its fame; E Inspires Effort, To keep our game alive; C Brings on the Contest , So that rivalry may thrive; K Alas, gives us Kibitzers, Who show up all the flaws; E Reminds us of the End game, Where many miss their draws!

I played a few games of the "old" Beast against the "new" Beast, and the "new" Beast seemed to win more than it lost. Norm brought a library of checkers books with him (that explained why his luggage was so heavy) and threw some problems at the program (figuratively, not literally). It solved most of them very easily. A few required deep analysis and we couldn't expect it to solve them. By and large, we were impressed with one weekend of Norm 's time. It was going to be easy to build a world-championship-caliber checkers program, or so I thought.

We played six games, with five ending in draws. Game four, however, was a different story. I guess we made a mistake in the opening, but early on Pask knew he was going to win and I had the bad feeling that we were going to lose. Chinook's assessment of the position dropped from move to move until the final result was obvious. I played on out of inertia, not wanting to suffer the humiliation of resigning. There were only a few people watching, but the burden of deciding Chinook's fate rested heavily on my shoulders.
