Abalone Game Situation 4

A previously unreleased game situation.

DANGEROUSLY ON THE BRINK

TURN: BLACK

The score is 4-5. Black to play. White just played c4d5 and Black played f3g4 before. Who will win this crazy endgame?

Keep in mind that in a real game, players may not find the best solution (^_-)—☆

A previously unreleased endgame problem. I dedicate it to my friend Vincent Frochot (:

SIDE EFFECTS

TURN: WHITE
LEVEL: QUITE BEGINNER-FRIENDLY

5-5. You play White. Black just dodged your attack by playing a side move (e8f9d8). Now it’s your turn. In any case, you win in 3 moves (:
