Again, sorry for all the delays in updating, the webmaster's internet connection (phone lines, modem, etc.) was destroyed by lightning and it took over a month to get everything back in order. The following problem is taken from the finals match of Herradura Masters, played between Mike Senkiewicz (WHITE) and Mike Svobodny (BLACK) during the Third Backgammon Tournament of the Américas. Click on the board to get the solution. A New problem will be posted December 1, 1997

15-point match. White leads Black 11 to 8. White on roll. Cube action?
