Unofficial World Championship Checker Problem Composing Contest 32 - Delicate Victories - 3/18/17-4/30/17

Wins can be so fragile.

Jim Morrison missed one of these wins in his recent, so-called perfectly played, 11-man ballot match against Moiseyev.

The Old Master G. H. Slocum won one of them in a recently discovered game, which when published was labeled the "most deceptive seen in years".

Another was inspired by a game won by a first-time entrant in this contest; a fourth expands on a line in Tescheleit's Master Play; and a fifth makes multiple corrections to a previously published problem.

Several run into published finishes, but their initial moves are original and provocative.

Even the problem titles have stories to tell (later).

Which one is best?

Who will become the new World Champion Problemist?

Anonymous voters, like you, will decide it right here on this site.

Please exercise the animator, vote for the one you deem best, and monitor the course of the contest by revisiting often.
