JUNE  2019 JOURNAL     

from Editor, Paul Braithwaite.

The June issue of the EDA Journal provides the regular mix of records and entertainment.  There are reports of the English Open (from Ken Lovell) and of the British & Irish GAYP Tournament together with the Kildare Open 2019 (from Bill Dobbins).   Gary Pollard has selected the “Problems” for this issue and members are invited to follow his example and have their favourite brain-teasers featured in future issues of the Journal.

For those seeking analysis of a game this is provided by Jim Loy (Editor of the ACF's "Bulletin") who this time has selected  a Markusic v Davies game from the 1973 USA versus GB International of 1973.

There is a summary of the recent highlights of the Facebook Group and Website features.

For historians there is another piece of intensive research by Chris Reekie, this time covering the venue of the famed Anderson v Wyllie match of 1847.   In contract we learn of the current jet-setting done by EDA Ambassador David Kotin as he seeks to promote draughts around the world.

Hopefully there is something for everyone in this upcoming issue so ensure that your subscription is current if you want a copy.
