The first English version championship just started, and it is very unusual....
First of all, it is a double round robin, unprecedented (?) in any championships at littlegolem, And it is a monster, 15 players, so a total of 28 games!! Secondly, all the games start at move 4 instead of move 1....and every game has the comment to start the game “3-move opening”. I guess it is impossible to resign these 28 games, as it is past move one, a player would lose a bunch of rating points.
I am not a fan of forced opening play. Let us just play the first three moves ourselves? What is the point?
This is common practice in high level checkers tournament play.
