This trio may challenge the masters. As usual, these have other commonalities beside their kingless settings. Check out the killer variations. Think counter-intuitive moves. Before computers, almost everybody missed moves like these. Can you find them?

You are invited to view them all animated here. 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.

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.
