This was an excellent wonderful checkers event I ever had. I am glad I didn't miss it this year.
I was lucky to win both games against Leroy Adams, Earl Morrison and Alan Millhone, and one game against the greatest survivor Ken Shoesmith. I will put games under other forum session.
Respectfully, Alex Moiseyev
