Geoff Crook from South Australia has sent us another conundrum from a recent game at Woodville. Please put your answers and comments in the ‘Leave a Reply’ box below.
The last 3 minutes
After a gap of at least 12 months, Woodville hosted a Sunday afternoon of Gateball on 7 November 2021. The last game of the day was pretty unusual, with Red storming to a 15-1 lead after 12 minutes, and White’s solitary ball in play was an out-ball [Ball 6].
However, White fought back and the result was the position below – 5 points behind with a couple of minutes left.
Ball 10 is to play, and assume Ball 6 plays last.
Can White win? Please explain the sequence of play leading to your answer.
