In the only Computer Checkers World Championship, KingsRow took second place behind Nemesis.
KingsRow was stronger than Cake++ in the early years. Cake++ finally caught up with KingsRow and gradually became stronger. It competed a 624 games match against Cake++ on Thanksgiving 2004 and Cake++ won 3 to 1 with 620 games ending in a draw. On July 17, 2005, Ed Gilbert completed building a 10-piece endgame database for use with KingsRow.
A version for Italian checkers with a nine-piece endgame tablebase is available, too.
A 10x10 version of KingsRow was started in 2007. In 2009, an eight-piece endgame tablebase was finished. With checkers solved and all top engine matches ending in draws only, KingsRow focusses on 10x10 draughts only today.
