 sorry JC, misread your post, yours is a triple kraken, I'm not used to deciphering what are at bottom forcing nets, but the net is valid. 25/Sep/13 8:03 AM |  |
 P1056: peterj, 1.5 too low for your step 2, 2 points minimum, also 4 legged kraken is .25 + 1 + 1 + .5 = 2.75so I estimate a score closer to 4.75 + .75 = 5.5, even so, an excellent path, better than mine. 1 kraken (DK), 1..2 aic; 1.5 + .5 + 3.5 + .25 = 5.75 *** 1. More... 25/Sep/13 8:18 AM |  |
