The strategy of othello, unlike a beginner thinks, is in capturing the lowest possible number of opponent's discs (maximazing come only in the endgame). The less discs you have, the more possible moves to play, and vice versa. In this position, white is in lead because he has more possible moves than black and thus can force black, with correct moves, to play wherever white wants. How many possible moves does white have to play in this position?
You must notice that the most important squares on the board are corners. A disc in a corner can never be captured and flipped. In every game players fight for corners, so it is not recommended to place discs to squares right next to them. For example, in this game white has made a mistake by playing to G7 because black can soon enter into the corner and gain a huge lead in the game. Which black's move flips a disc on the C3-F6 diagonal so that black can play to the H8 corner in his next move?
The endgames are probably the most important part of the game. You can spoil all your effort in few last moves. In the position here, black has two last moves. White cannot play so after any of these moves he will have to pass and black will finish the game. However, there is a big difference in the order of playing moves A2 and A8. One of them gives black a win 34:30, the other not more than a draw 32:32. Which move should black now play to win the game?
The cache is hidden in the Park close to chess tables (see photo). In summer during nice weather, the tables are filled with players, it might even be difficult to find a free spot. The signal may not be excellent so do not be afraid to use the fotohint.
If you liked solving the problems, there is another bonus one, it shows there are always exceptions from all strategic rules, and how rich this game is. In the position, white will make a quite unusual move. In his next move, he will attack black and in his 3rd move he will go to a corner. He will simply force black to let him go to a corner. If you are ablo to solve this hard problem, you can let us now and you can attend official tournaments right away :-)
