World Checkers Champion
Alex Moiseyev Alan

Formerly undisputed World champion, King lost the TMRT to Alex Moiseyev Alan in 2003. World checkers champion Alex Moiseyev Alan defeated King eight games to three on home turf and followed up this victory by again beating King in 2005 in Ireland. King is however confident that he can once again bring the TMRT back to Barbados. “After my comprehensive victory over Morrison of the United States last week, I will not be resting until I am back on top as the undisputed King of the draughts world,” he said.
King added: “Over the next couple of months, I will be putting in a lot of work in TMR style to prepare myself to challenge the American.”
“This type of draught is not popular in Barbados like the Go As You Please format,” King explained.
“However, to this end, I would like the corporate community to come on board and assist in sponsoring some Three Move Restriction Tournament, in order to assist me in my preparation.”
“This will not only benefit myself, but also other draught players who are not accustomed to this style,”
he said.
The Barbados Checkers and Draught Federation (BCDF) is in the process of bidding to host the TMRT match in Barbados.
Secretary of the Federation Hazeldin King stated that....“One of the major objectives of the association is to host some of the games throughout the Caribbean. This will certainly help to promote draught among our neighbors and assist in it’s growth,” she concluded.
King won the World Qualifier in Stone Haven, Scotland to become the official challenger for the Three Move Restriction World title against current world checkers champion Alex Moiseyev Alan of the United States.
King is scheduled to challenge Alex Moiseyev on May 23, 2007. King expressed his thanks to Cable & Wireless for the wonderful support they gave him during his recent Go As You Please title defense against Jim Morrison at the Checker Hall of fame in Petal Mississippi.
He also expressed sincere gratitude to Black Bess and Adams Tours for their assistance,
on Saturday, 30 December 2006.

Top draughts player, Ronald "Suki" King is the national sports personality for 2006.

King was crowned by the National Sports Council, with assistance from media houses in Barbados.

He will reign until the end of 2007.

The official ceremony will be early next year.

King spoke to CBC sports about his major achievements for this year.

The draughts champion says he must thank his sponsors and team of car washers, who rallied around him this year.

He also spoke about some of the goals he has his eyes on in 2007.

Suki Loses Right To Defend Title

WORLD GO AS YOU PLEASE (GAYP) CHAMPION Ronald "Suki" King has lost the right to compete for the Three-Move Restriction title this year after failing to fulfill his obligations to host the match here.
According to a Press release issued by Hugh Devlin, president of the World Checkers and Draughts Federation (WCDF), King had submitted a bid to stage the match against American titleholder Alex Moiseyev at the Frank Collymore Hall from September 30 to October 10, but didn't do so.
An integral part of that bid was that airline flights would be provided to both World Champion Alex Moiseyev Alan (USA) and WCDF official referee Alan Millhone (USA) to bring them to Barbados for the match.
Details of names, addresses, telephone numbers and proposed departure dates were provided by these individuals. Their departure from the United States was scheduled for today [September 28, 2007], but for some reason no airline tickets have arrived.
There has been no correspondence received by myself, world checkers champion Alex Moiseyev or Alan Millhone from Barbados prior to this morning concerning any problems or requesting any postponements," the release said in part.
In view of this situation and that champion Alex Moiseyev and Alan Millhone had made considerable changes in their personal, family and work commitments in anticipation of departing for Barbados today, the WCDF have ruled that the Barbados bidders have defaulted on their commitments.
The WCDF have no option but to cancel the match and rule that Ronald "Suki" King has lost his right to challenge for the World Championship Three Move Restriction title for this cycle. No further bid is being sought.
Devlin said such an occurrence was "unprecedented in the history of World Championship matches".
The release said the process of setting a date for the match began in July 2006 after the qualifying tournament was held in Scotland that year. However, by the closing date of October 2006, no bids were received and the date was extended to January 2007 and then to July.
At that time, similar bids were received from Barbados and the United States, with the WCDF eventually awarding the bid to Barbados.
Meanwhile, a release from the King camp last week said he would make an attempt to have another date set now that he is in Ireland.
World GAYP champion Ronald Suki King left the island to participate in the Irish Open Draughts Championship. Also competing will be current Three-Move Restriction champ Alex Moiseyev of the United States.
There is likely to be a showdown between these two as the tourney is Three-Move. King, who is sponsored by the Barbados Tourism Authority, Cable & Wireless, Barbados National Bank and Banks, will also meet with the world body regarding the world title match between him and Alex Moiseyev Alan.
King will also face a challenge for the GAYP title next year after relative unknown South African Lubabalo Kondlo won the world qualifier earlier this year.

28th September 2007
The process of establishing a match between defending World Champion (3 move restriction) Alex Moiseyev (USA) and challenger Ron “Suki” King (Barbados) began last year following the conclusion of the World Qualifying Tournament held in Scotland during July 2006. No bids were received at the closing date for bids (1st October 2006) to host this important match. The WCDF Executive Board agreed to extend the closing date for bids until 1st January 2007. Ron King announced his intention to submit a bid to host this proposed match in Barbados but no bid was made prior to this date. The Executive Board of the WCDF agreed to a further deadline to 1st July 2007 to allow for fresh bids to be submitted.

Two bids were received on this date, one from Barbados and the other from the U.S.A. The two bids were similar in the conditions they offered. Following consultation the WCDF awarded the winning bid to Barbados. The bid proposed to host the match at the Frank Collymore Hall, Central Bank, Bridgetown, Barbados, from Sunday 30th September to 10th October 2007. An integral part of that bid was that airline flights would be provided to both World Champion Alex Moiseyev (U.S.A.) and WCDF official referee Alan Millhone (U.S.A.) to bring them to Barbados for the match. Details of names, addresses, telephone numbers and proposed departure dates were provided by these individuals. Their departure from the U.S.A. was scheduled for today, but for some reason no airline tickers have arrived. There has been no correspondence received by myself, champion Alex Moiseyev, or Alan Millhone from Barbados prior to this morning concerning any problems or requesting any postponements.

This occurrence is unprecedented in the history of World Checkers Championship Matches and we apologise to those concerned that have worked hard to bring this match about.
