Today I want to present a very interesting position from the match Capablanca and Backwoods for the master series in the FIBS league which I lost after winning 8 / 2 to 9 in this position I played the very interesting 13/8 9/8 blocking the two red checkers, playing purity. But with the answer 42 revived, catching and blocking point 4: 8/4 * 6/4, white dances, then with 31 played 23/22 8/5, white dances again, 51 23/22 10/5, white dances again, 61 22/16 and then came back with the second tab, easily winning the game. With the simple capture and 21/20 * 9/4 the game and therefore the match is practically over. We must always kill the checkers in the adversary home not only to gain in the race but also to facilitate escape in case of difficulties. A single checker is a possibility of point inside the home. Sometimes we try to play purity when it is not necessary.

thx for the article but could you perhaps replace the board images with a board that shows the numbers and score - if you look at the fibsboard match boards you will see what can be achieved with often less than 20 kb. the numbers will help readers understand the article better.

i have removed all the style and microsoft html and css which isn't needed when submitting articles - and indeed calls to href="file:///D:%5CDOCUME%7E1%5CLUISSA%7E1%5CCONFIG%7E1%5CTemp%5Cmsohtml1%5C01%5Cclip_filelist.xml">

but an interesting choice = thx for sharing --- take a look at the backgammon problems in board  where you might find it better to post some problem positions. the sticky topics at the top explain ways to post with diagrams.

the article format is fine -- just be sure to paste straight text not googleblog code or similiar as i think it bungs up our works here! you can check the html of an article by clicking the green  button in the bottom right of the various editing tools which appear at the top of the article submission area

many thx again
