"Capturing by a draughtsman or a damka is compulsory. However, when there are different alternative captures, the player can choose which capture to make." In theory, by logic capturing with draughtsman or danka should be forced even if the other pieces are possible to capture. In draughts pieces have forced capture while in chess they dont: So you can: 1-Assume this is a rule of draughts and while doing a crossover with chess and so do A or B: A- use this rule (all pieces have forced capture) B - not use it (and so use the chess rules, no pieces have forced capture). OR 2-Assume this is a rule of the draughts pieces, and so only the draughts pieces will have this rule. He assumed 2 (since the draughts pieces have forced captures and the chess ones dont). So, this would means draughts pieces MUST capture if possible, period.
