Be forewarned, what follows is a typical techy mambo-jumbo, pretending to know something :)

The Pool Checkers Library has moved - yet it stays at the same http://library.poolcheckers.com/  address - how could it be?

You can now read Charles Thompson's famous 20 Greatest and Legends Of Buster series originally published on the CheckersUSA website in 2003-2005.
Till now we only had "The Legend of Buster Smith" article in the Publisher section, but now I re-created the whole thing - enjoy!
