Reported by Clarence Gooche kown as Shotgun on pool checkers google groups  on 16th March 2011 and this is what he said; "Sacks Mwaaza and Neil Wright played a 10 game match on VOG ending 2-1 in Mr. Mwaaza's favour. Gentalmen, these two individuals played some gruelling games for three hours. It was as good as it gets. In the meantime, these games will be posted on http://americanpoolcheckers.us in the training section shortly.
The sharing of information is my business."

Sacks,

I can email you the games in the Portable Draughts Notation (PDN) format. If you placed you comments within the same format I can easily post to web site including comments after commented move.

Thanks,
Shotgun

Shotgun.

The idea is good and i am more than willing to share my analysis of the games so as to make others fully understand the meaning of each and every move i made in all the games played.
Though i do not have access to the games we played ,fortunately,i am able to go through almost all the games' positions we played using a draughts board at home(LAB). Remebering all the moves of each game we played, helps me to analyse the games and find solutions to some of the difficulties i encoutered in the match.

Sacks.

Sacks,

In my opinion, both of you are worthy competitors. However, I hope that in the future other pool checkers players, especially American born, will accept your challenge. I have gotten several telephone calls praising the quality of play. At some point I would love to see the two of you analyze these games. Let the viewers know what was on your minds as you were playing. I could see that the first several moves were basic opening theories, but as you two approached the middle of the games, I am sure that there were much strategy and tactics employed by both of you. It would be beneficial to all if you two would share some of these strategies and tactics. I know, some of us can analyze the games on our own, but it sure would be nice if you two took on the task while both of you are breathing fire.

Thanks Shotgun,thanks everybody.

I must mention that the match was truly very competetive and i did not expect it to end 1x1. I had prepared myself to beat Bookman with a tangible margin but he proved me wrong by playing so well avoiding all traps which i had set more especially in the game which he won.

Suggestion : 40 minutes for an online match is just too much and i would suggest that 40 minutes should only be applicable on some matches or tournaments played physically.Too much of time on an online match creates room for consultations,contributions and other comments in line with a game played at that partucular time.In order to perfect some online tournaments and to give a 100% fare platform for all the online players,i would really appreciate if time is reduced to 20 minutes, each player having 10 minutes on each side.

Having said all this,let us continue arranging such online tournaments and we can even involve SKYPE during such matches and if possible we can find a way of organising world online tournamets involving different countries intrested and we make vog as a playing field.

Sacks.

Thanks for the kudos Shotgun.The match was very competitive. Sacks is truly a good player, he got out of some tough situations which proves he is a great player. I trust that the games will be of use to players hoping to improve their game. The game in question was replayed later in the match and was draw.

Gentleman, I have posted the Sacks Mwaaza vs Neil Wright II games to http://americanpoolcheckers.us/ under the training section. You will notice that there are only 8 games posted as one game was lost due to a "lost connection” by one of the players and one was not played due to time restraint. This time the gladiators talked a little "trash” that was somewhat amusing yet they played with keen eyes. Charles "Mr. Pecan” Thompson once advised me that games are won when one or the other makes a mistake. After 8 games played the score was 1x1.

My hat goes off to Mr. Neil Wright (Bahamas) and Sacks Mwaaza (Zambia) for not only did they play some tough games of pool checkers, but they help foster international camaraderie and exhibited mutual respect for the game as well as each other. Thanks guys. Hope that in the future similar matches similar can be arranged.
