In this position, white played 79.e5e2 (capture 4 with 3), which loses to 80.i2e2 (capture 7 with 4). But isn’t 79.i4i2 (capture 4 with 2) winning for white? White threatens i2c2 (capture 3 with 6). Preventing this with 80.e2i2 (capture 6 with 4) loses almost immediately (21 – 17). Preventing this with 80.j2i2 (capture 6 with 1) or 80.c2f2 (clearing the 6’s landing square) now allows 81.e5e2 (capture 4 with 3), as there’s no longer a black piece that can recapture. White has no more moves, and after g3i3, i3d3 (bringing over the right-most DVONN) wins (15 – 13).
Another month, another neat endgame position. Can you find a winning move for white?
