In Turkish draughts, both the white and the black fields are used. Captures and moves go straight forward and sideways. A king can also go backwards and over longer distances.
It is played on the board with 64-squares and in the starting position there are 16 white pieces on the 2nd and 3rd row and 16 black pieces on the 6th and 7th row.
Meanwhile Turkey also moves into the field of international draughts. A delegation of 28 participants and supervisors from Turkey has come to Beilen. The match Georgiev – Ndjofang was played in Izmir in the last week of October. The youth world championships of 2016 are also scheduled to take place in Izmir.
The team leader Ismailov from Turkey honoured Wim Koopman during the closing ceremony with a commemorative plate.
Friday afternoon the world youth tournaments of Turkish draughts were played.
Here are the results.
