Charles "Pecan" Thompson pages

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:54 pm

About a month ago I was informed the Charles "Pecan" Thompson's http://hspccc.com/ site was closing down.

For those who do not know - in 2003 Mr. Thompson started an electronic monthly newspaper featuring remarkable "Legends of Buster" (see http://library.poolcheckers.com/index/charlesthompson/0-46) which I pulled out into a separate book.

Later on, independently from the "Legends", Mr. Thompson worked with me on a series of about 30 articles known as the "20 Greatest", specifically for publishing on CheckersUSA.com. Charles and I had a very good working relation, he was always on time with the articles, and I spent countless hours creating and formatting web pages, adding indexes, links, pictures, diagrams, commentaries.

When Pecan just opened his site I immediately prepared and sent him an easy to install package with all his CheckersUSA.com works, including the well deserved MVP award, to help populate the site, he never asked for it. All the years since I felt no need to duplicate the pages, but now, with his site closing, I of course posted them on my library site.

Looking back, Pecan's books were one of the CheckersUSA.com greatest achievements, to record, organize and preserve a large piece of the American history.

Incidentally, the Library has yet another "20 Greatest" list - 10,000 games played by the 20 greatest Russian grandmasters.
