This contest is the 1st ever to feature the rare Deferred Breeches theme. You may not see that far ahead, but in all 6 problems here, White surprisingly forces or lures Red into eventually forming the Breeches; and then White Kings use those Breeches to execute 1 victory and 5 escapes.

The settings are presented in reverse alphabetical order. Three of them corrected published play. Which of them do you deem best of the lot? Please respond by voting for it after seeing them all animated.

The number of voters in the last six contests, stretching over the past year, has consistently been in the 13 to 20 range. This suggests that many of them are repeat voters loyally returning to participate in each new contest. We would like to thank them, but we don't know who they are.

We want to keep the voting anonymous for those who do not want to be identified. But a suggestion has been made for others to let me know who they are and how they voted. If at least a few will do so over multiple contests, we will be able to determine who among them correctly identified the most winning problems. We could then crown him or her the Unofficial World Champion Judge of Checker Problems. Wouldn't you like to know who that person is? Perhaps this new World Championship would even lead to an increase in future contest voting.

So please vote in the current contest, and when you do, consider sending your comments to my e-mail address shown just under the diagrams on this voting page.
