Yes.
Seems like there is more the one win in this position.
The problem is imperfect this way.

A nice shot, but 16-12 also draws allowing a dual.
16-12, 14-17, (if 19-23, 28-24 draws) 31-27, 9-14, 27-23, 19-26, 30-23, 22-26, 23-19, 26-31, 12-8, 3-12, 19-15, 31-27, 11-7. 27-23, 7-2, drawn.

White to move and win (7 Feb 2011 problem):

Maybe 17-14, 10x17 26-22, 17x26 30x7, 2x11 28x19 (the easy part) which leaves:

R: 5, 9, 11, 12
W: 18, 19, 20, 31

Red to move and must lose a piece in the king-down ending. 9-14 18x9, 5x14 just misses because of 31-27 (not 31-26?).

From the above position (after 28x19), 9-13 would leave Red with a 3 versus 4 king-down loss but it gets too complex for me and it's late at night.

That's my take...now you can tell me what I overlooked. Something, no doubt.

V/R,

Gary Jenkins/jaguar72

Thanks, John.

It goes to prove that even a blind pig can find the occasional acorn.

There you have it.
