The game of Checkers (American style, on an 8x8 board) will be solved by the end of 2005. Either a complete analysis (sufficient to prove a win for one side, or a draw for both), or a mathematically rigorous proof of the game value, will be given.
Ambiguity clause: I will judge this claim based on its precise wording, unless this wording conflicts with my perception of the intent of the claim. If both intent and wording are ambiguous, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game. If you have any questions, or think you may have found a loophole, please contact me!!
