Here are the long-awaited ratings from the 8th Annual International
(Big-Board) Checker Festival in South Bend, Indiana, and all of our earlier
tournaments. These were calculated using the linear approximation formula
from the old Official Chess Handbook. - posted by Roger Blaine
Orlando "Panama" Williams wiped everyone out this year and solidified his
place at the top of the list of active players. Only Grandmaster Igor
Rybakov, who played here in 2001, is higher. Roger Blaine ("Yours truly")
made the largest gain in rating points this time with +73.
Capital letters indicate players in this year's tournament. Other players
