I’m Ready to Go

  • Jonathan Schaeffer


I talked with Marion Tinsley in January during the Lafferty match. At the time he sounded good and he was in excellent spirits. He wanted to play Chinook again, possibly as soon as August. “Any time you feel up to it, we’re ready to play,” I told him. The prize money left over from Boston ensured that another Tinsley-Chinook match would be a reality once Marion’s health recovered. I never mentioned it to him, but the reality of the situation was that there would never be another match like London or Boston. The Boston debacle guaranteed that no one would ever want to invest money to see another big checkers match again.
