In presenting this, my latest effort, to the players of the country, I wish to call the readers attention to the fact that this id not a textbook, but a compilation of fine games played in American matches. The games contained herein have been taken from various matches, and are presented here for the first time to the Checker players of A merica. Many games will be foimd that contain play that does not appear in the ordinary textbook. As the expert and student alike are generally familiar with the placing of the board and pieces, and the numbering of the board for play, no space has been devoted to instructions for the beginner. All the laws of the game might be safely discarded if but two of them were strictly adhered to, i. e., A player having a piece to capture must take it, and, If a piece be touched it must be moved. Feeling confident that the games will be thoroughly enjoyed by the novice and keenly appreciated by the expert, I present Checker Classics The Expert sH andbook of American Match Games. E. A. Smith, Atlantic City Champion. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Nineteen Twenty-two.
