Thanks for problem : will appear next week. •J. A. Scott—Have received your further analysis of Game 10. You have proved your contention that Game 10 is n black win ; we publish play below. Thanks for play. Bill consider Mr ,1. P. Grey's problem next week, n m m Our tourney is in full swing, and .we thought it better to play tournament games on Wednesday and Saturday instead of Wednesdays, as previously stated. The boys are anxious to play all their games this year, and n ot back out. as did some of the weaker players last year, thinking their case hopeless. That is a mistake, for Mr Mulvey can handicap finishes to almost a hairs breadth. The more l games a beginner can Put in the greater his chance of winning the coveted honours. So practice concentration and develop power of will, and you’ll play the •gtune of draughts much better than he who keeps it stilh- ® ® ® The following are the scores to date :—■ Saturday, duly 13. .Wins.
