This is a zero-move game from Little Golem which I am using to show a position from Florian Jamain's post on You tube:
Please click on the last move,
, to see the puzzle position. I got the move order wrong but all that matters is the position at the end of it. White to move and win.
Click on the Main page link and you will see a FAQ link at the bottom of the page.
Every comment you post here must include the 16 moves at the start. Use copy and paste.
I did all this to continue a conversation about the puzzle. User Sawderf said
was good for white. My question to him is, what should white do about
? For example
and now A10 is forbidden to white.

Oops the correct link to the YT post is
Also the object given by Florian is to connect the o10 group to the top.

Well I did not really checked it, so I hope it works :D

Connecting o10 to the top is a great puzzle. Winning the game is not the intended puzzle, but maybe it could be?

With regard to this larger puzzle, white to move can indeed win IMO, but solving this puzzle has less to do with discovering clever tactics and more to do with memory and experience. I'll just point out that White E18 is a useful downstream peg that turns white D12 into a real threat. Once black blocks that threat, then white can return focus to the original task of connecting the o10 group to the top. But white should not play
right away, because then
wins for black.
