    Position after   80. 10-6    81. 23-18.   White to move and win

    e5-f6 forcing g7-e5

    b6-a7 forcing d8-b6, then a7-c5-e3, white wins

    no, that is what i thought at first, but that is a draw, because after white does the double jump,  black plays e5-f4!  and then white has to jump with his king, and then black retakes and one man each, and black promotes first....keep trying!

    Oh I overlooked this strong resistance... Before b6-a7 white should h4-g5 and sacrifice one more stone. Triple-sacrificing to get a win! Nice problem!

    Gamesorry, correct!  I thought it was neat that I had to sacrifice 3 of my 4 remaining pieces to get the triple jump and preserve my king to win, and I almost made the mistake of only sacrificing two.

    Good problem.
