I dedicate this variation to David Jameson, who is the best Welsh Abalone player I know (:

This variation was created on May 26, 2018 in Paris by French Abalone player Olivier Charles-Joseph, best known online as OCJ.
The name was given by Frédéric Garnier.
As you can see it is a balanced variation 😎
Olivier Charles-Joseph won Silver at the 2018 Abalone World Championship along with David Pearce (England) and Frédéric Garnier (France). Gold was won by Vincent Frochot (France).

“Having been close to both artists and chess [or Abalone] players, I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess [or Abalone] players, all chess [or Abalone] players are artists.”
Marcel Duchamp, French/American artist and chess player (1887-1968)
