Notice the special boards with dark squares indented below the light ones to guide where to place the pieces.
Also the clock - it has no glass, they set it up and check the status by touch.
 
Many remember Anatoliy Grupin (not in the picture), the blind Ukrainian player from Los Angeles, who won a couple of APCA divisions.
I played blitz !!! with him many times, most of the times he anticipated my moves and would just check the spots after hearing me move.

It turned out our Jamaican friends set their board differently, with the Mason line at the bottom right corner. Since they do not record their games yet I propose they mirror the existing Pool Checkers notation - this way all games, American or Jamaican style, are recorded and re-played exactly the same way, no matter how the board is set. This would help them greatly to absorb the existing information and keep the same "Pool Checkers Language" in all countries.
To demonstrate I flipped all diagrams in the Jamaican Contest to make them look Jamaican style. Just print and distribute to your friends!

I think it was a great idea, there are ways to build community, and interacting with general public puts everyone at ease and creates trust.

Do not know about you, but my favorite place is Collections - I come there to unwind, to solve a dozen positions before going to sleep, to once again (I solved them all while selecting for collections) admire the beautiful ideas, and time to time even discover a draw. If you were to run contests in your clubs/countries, these collections are endless supply of joy and mental challenge! It took me 40 years to collect and test, for every position in the collections 2-3 were rejected. Enjoy!

We just had an in-depth analysis of this position on another site, hopefully there are players on this site just as enthusiastic to dig in and unravel the mystery!
