Puzzle 2: Intermediate End-Game

By | June 29, 2011

Thanks to Tradersean for providing this puzzle.

In this game, you are Yellow and Green (Yellow is dead), and are trying to win the end-game.  Be aware that Blue and Red both still have moves that can be made, and you should try to have them make the best moves possible given your choices, so this puzzle requires some playing-around.

Enjoy.
