White is on the move and plays two moves after which he wins the game easily. Insert the coordinates of both moves in the correct order.

Tricky puzzle!

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

Has anyone else given this puzzle a try yet? It's a good one.

saw no takers so I looked this over, you don't mention any capture counts so I'm assuming this is a win by force since only 2 moves allowed.

based on that as white, black: P1, P2

I'd move 1. F4, F5! 2. K11, ?

pretty sure that would negate the diagonal tria from black and I would be just fine from that position as White\P1 from whatever black\P2 tried.

If 2. K11 J12, then white wins by forces with something like H9 M13 K13 J13 H13 (assuming P2 caps) J15 and wins on the next move.

Easy one: white just played L12. Black can't ignore this because of possible 4x3 on J10. What is best move for black? Who has win in this position?

Best move for black - M9. After a white block of black's tria at O11, I'm guessing black can create a winning formation with trias and extensions, but haven't worked it through completely to a sure win.

I'm probably missing something, but I just don't see a win for black in the latest puzzle. I'd pick the white pieces if it were a D Pente position.

I peek at them when they're posted, but can't find a solution in the time I'm willing to give them.

For me personally, keep them coming.

New one, already tested by Watsu. Please note that previous puzzle are modified.

White to move and win in 6 moves (that is 6 white moves). As solution give coordinates of first two moves.
