Book 2: Section 2:

Red gives up a horse for a one horse handicap match. Handicap matches are not as simple as they seem!
This volume is dedicated to seeing how Red wins in such a situation.

Book 2: Section 3
Red would give up even more material in this handicap match by starting the game with a two horse handicap.

For practical purposes, I have included all the games in this section under Volume 3 on this site. But I have chosen to divide them into two different pages to speed up the download time required.
As these are all handicapped matches, there will not be any ECCO tags available.

Simple commentary will be given. For a more detailed discussion, please refer to the book published by the Webmaster.
