This trio of deferred strokes differ in size and ending. They share the commonality of quadruple jumps that land on different squares. That should be all the hints that solvers need to be successful.

You are invited to view them all animated at this web site. The most popular entry will be decided by the votes of website visitors like you. Your vote will also let you see immediately how others are voting. More voters are needed to keep these contests going.

If you choose to e-mail Bill Salot at wjsalot@comcast.net, disclosing how you voted, you will be put on the International Voters Ladder to determine who the best winner-picker is. Voters on the upper rungs of the ladder are published with the results of each contest. At the end of the year, we will identify the Voter-of-the-Year.

If you want to contribute your own original, unpublished, checker problem for use in a future contest, please send it to the above e-mail address. More composers are needed to keep these contests going.
