Sneaky mechanical shape(s) in pente
Posted: Sep 12, 2023, 11:00 PM




There are many mechanical shapes in pente. A shape of stones that has a VCT function if not answered correctly.

Here is one that is sneaky. That many masters may not be aware of but should know. P1 dismissed it as a blocked structure that could go no where. Quickly p1 realized the mistake.

I think karls 4th at H10 solves this. Ill need to look more at it. I recall solving this at one point. I think in my move file I may have recorded my solution. Requires me to break out the ol lap top and check.

Yes. A term I coined over 10 years ago. Although I guess can also be called a sneaky VCT shape. (Victory by Continuous/Consecutive Threats)
