10-14 openings

There are openings in the 10-14 that are all of the Denny family. Therefore they are all named Denny initially with some additions during the 2-move and/or 3-move era. One can see a fine example in Basic Checkers where Richard Fortman grouped the openings. The name was given by Mr. John Drummond named after the town of Denny where he used to reside.
