Comment:
This position comes up after the sequence 1.: 4-2,6-3 2.:5-2. Now you have a 5-3 to play. I found this very interesting, because the 3 candidate moves: 1) escape (18-10) 2) make the five and 3) make the 3 all look very good and as it turns out they are all very close together. I assume this would change if this would not be a DMP game.
