Here is an interesting position, right from the game, one side is trying to steal the too advanced checker, the other side, while defending it, is mounting an attack on the left side. Normally in such positions black move 1.10-14 forcing the 2...25-22 to get a draw.
But here we also have a hidden gem move 1.12-16! What is really interesting is that my Aurora program repeatedly answers 24-20, can someone show why 24-20 is bad?

One often gets into a position where he just needs to go deep and count and count and count....
Here is one such position worthy of the top master training - your task is to analyse it, find best moves for both sides, discover ideas, predict the result...

I found much of the content from the original checkersusa.com including APCA games, Pecan's articles, analyses, even some bulletin entries! But I wonder if they have a place on this site, different goals. Here is one of the "brain-teasers" from the past:
