Unofficial World Championship Checker Problem Composing Contest 58

Kingless

September 18, 2021---October 31, 2021

This contest page has been viewed 94 times by 35 unique visitors.

Except for being kingless and approximately equal in difficulty, these four original, unpublished compositions have very little in common. They are inconsistent in terms, size, length, appearance, theme, style and composer. Your opinion of the individual problems will no doubt be influenced by your view of those variables. Your vote will help sort things out. Please vote for the problem that impresses you most.

If you care to climb on the free International Voters’ Ladder, notify me how you voted. I am at wjsalot@comcast.net. For the current ladder standings, see the results of Contest 57.

The winner will be determined by vote. After you've reviewed the problems, cast your ballot in the box below.
