at move 22 i am feeling good!
we have captured 3 pairs each.
richard has 4 unprotected pairs under threat and i only need two.
i only have 1 pair under threat.
looks good for me, right?
wrong!
the king still reigns!

Interesting game, thanks for sharing. It is fun to study a game that gets to down to the wire with captures.

I relatively new to pente, so I want to better understand strategy and tactics. It seems to me, that after move 20 invictus (to H9), based on richardiii's play, the game is decided.

What would have been a better move for invictus at move 20? Was the game's outcome decided before move 20?

20. ... L13 looks like a good alternative to 20. ... H9*.

Retired from TB Pente, but still playing live games & exploring variants like D, poof and boat
