In this video I’ll finish the discussion of doubling in back games that I started in Episode 7. Most back games consist of several well-defined stages, so I’ll start by looking at the evolution of a typical backgame, from the early positions where one side gets a bunch of men back, all the way to the late game positions where the back game has succeeded in hitting a checker but now needs to contain it. After that I’ll look at some practical examples of interesting back games, and we’ll wind up by looking at a back game that’s so strong that it can double the opponent out before even getting a shot!
