Who is winning? h/t to Karlw
Posted: Dec 28, 2019, 6:10 AM

Who is winning here, and how does play proceed optimally for the next three or four moves by each player? H/T to Karlw for this position.




I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney

Hey, this game looks familiar
I think he should have eventually moved K11 instead of O7 in response to my L10

OK, I just noticed the grid is different here than the original game. That would mean that in response to my K13, he should have eventually moved J14 instead of N10.

He had another option besides either J14 or N10, both of which lose for him.

... Nevermind, I'm guessing we are trying to find the win for white...

Hint: the crucial move for White is after 15...K13 16 F13 E13 17 N13 K13.

The best defense is a good offense...

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Black K13, White N13 (capturing K13 & L13) - Captures B4 W4
Black K13, White K9 (ha ha! Took a while to find that!)
This creates a tria for white and pretty much a kill for black via captures...

Correct: K9 (or N12) is the winning idea. If Black tries to win with N10, then White just barely wins by 5 caps. And if Black tries the other side with J14, then caps on J16 and N12 create a stretch 4 for White!
