Pro Checkers is a variant of regular American Checkers
Pro Checkers begins with the first three moves (red, then white, then
red) already made for you. For most official tournaments, the player who
goes first picks from a set of 144 openings approved for tournament play,
or the opening may be picked randomly. After the opening is complete,
the game continues identically to regular checkers.
