"No Snakes"
1983. Scott Justice
Pente in 6.
White (yellow) has 0 captures.
Black has 0 captures.

The key move is 1. L3 !. This move triggers two attacks. The upper threat continues 2. L1U2 with 3. U3 or 3. R2U2. Black can't stop both. The lower threat is 2. D3 followed by 3. L1D2 or 3. R1D3. Again, Black is unable to stop both.
