Capablanca's including 8x10 was article November 1995, and New Chancellors 8x10 here over year later. Foster's 9x9 100 years earlier is example of mediocre form, having Bishops' unsymmetrical, that originator relies on promotion for approval. How does Betza's 'Three Kinds Billiards...'(and 'Billiards Progressive') translate to 8x10? There is big difference when the board is not square. Bishop at c2, for convenience, with clear paths can move c2-b1-(bounce)a2-(bounce)b3-c4-d5-e6-f7-g8-(bounce)h7-i6-j5-(bounce)i4-h3-g2-f1-(bounce)e2-d3-c4-b5-a6-(bounce)b7-c8-(bounce)d7-e6-f5-g4-h3-i2-j1. Seven bounces. How many more are possible on 'normal' rectangular board configurations? Apparently, Betza would be right that Billiards and Cylindrical powers are on a par just by board rectangle not square.
