I found this PAGE congratulating Ion Dosca with his birthday. I tried to convert it into English using Systran automated translator - but it translated last name "Doska" to "Board" icon_smile.gif and I decided against the translation!

Charles Thompson, in his "20 Greatest Players", deservedly praised Mr. Doska (this is how the name is written in Russian), winner of the 2000 APCA tournament.
I might just add - with the name like "Doska", which literally means "a checkers board" how could one not play great? icon_smile.gif

By the way - the second line from the bottom leads to his best games.
In case your Russian is not as good as mine here is the direct LINK.

I enjoyed the game, however, it doesn't mention who he was playing against. I was in hope to see some of the games he played in the 2001 APCA Tournament. It was my understanding the Link would show some of his best GAMES, I only saw one game.

This is a correction to the above statement; it was my error and carelessness. After taking a closer look at what Jake had said, I found him to be absolutely correct. A blunder on my part, and some very good and interesting games. My blunder almost cost me a wonderful treat.

Thanks very much Jake, you are so kind to the viewers of this site to keep us informed about the greatness of checkers and some of the great games played. We appreciate very much your outstanding works and time you have given to the site for our pleasure. And it is a "PLEASURE" to view the magnificient works you've done to this site <CHECKERS USA>

Thanks Filippov for the kind words. I only wish people started responding to various topics like Regional Tournaments idea that Pecan was working so hard to present here.

Regarding the "only one game". You are obviously not yet familiar with Tdam applets. The very last button is "list" - when you click on it it opens a list of games to choose from. Look at the applets (THIS one for example) on our site that use English - there too the last button offer a list of games.

I just played a few games from that list - the games are fantastic - but there are many games and because it does not maintain which game you just looked at it is very very hard to select the next game.
The strange letters you see are not Russian - to see Russian you must install a correct Russian font on your computer - AND understand Russian!
