Contest: Hardest Position To Draw

Postby EdTrice on Fri Aug 04, 2006 2:41 pm

I am sure those who have played in a fair number of tournaments have a few "war stories" about pulling out a miraculous win or achieving a draw in a tough position as time was winding down...

But I am wondering, is there some position, embryonic from the opening or treacherous in the ending, that all checkerists would "have to" agree is the most difficult to draw?

I would be interested in seeing extremely difficult compositions, or even positions from actual games, that players believe are nearly impossible to draw.

Feel free to post them here.

That was a long win, not a hard draw.
