Draughts

£10

Pool draught played on a 8×8 board. Brazilian mix in that you do not get a king unless you end on the back rank.

  • In Pool draughts a player is forced to capture when there is a capture possible. A player may choose any capture that is available, and is not forced to play the longest sequence. However, once a capture chain has started, a player must always finish the whole capture. In the diagram below, white can choose to capture d4:f6 or f4:b4. White is not allowed to capture only f4:d6, because the whole capture sequence has to be finished.
  • kings can jump farther than capture.
  • regular pieces can take backwards.

Tournament Format
Players Per Table – 2
Rounds – 9 swiss
Clock Settings – 10 minutes per game + 5 seconds
