Welcome to the Judge Openings List. This list, which is part of the Diplomatic Pouch, provides information on openings in games that are either forming, or which need replacement players. The following pages provide access to the openings:
Copies of some of these are also available via mail. Send mail to [email protected] to get the information sent to you.
All maps included in the Openings List are in the PostScript format. Because these maps are scalable, they provide a high level of detail combined with a small size. Since this is not easily realized with pixel-based graphics formats, there are no plans to include maps in other formats such as PNG.
One set of tools for looking at PostScript maps are the GhostScript interpreter and its related viewers.
The openings list would not be available if Sean Starkey and Brad Stuart had not created the initial code to compile it, and if Bjørn Tore Sund and then Hans de Graaff had not kept it going for many years. Thank you!
The openings list also owes a big thank-you to David Kovar for donating the equipment and network connectivity for hosting the Openings List (and all of the Pouch).
