Hi, my friend 187Gallo and I worked a lot on this 8 moves puzzle. Was so cool.

We think that it starts with D11-D2,
forcing A4-C2 or A5-A2
B10-B2(xC2) if its there
A5-A2
B2-B3
A2-B2
D2-C2
D1-C1
B3-A3
F2-D2
A3-A2 xB2
C1-B1
C2-C1xB1
A6-B6
C1-A1

That was the hardest run, but many other victory was doable is black makes mistake.

Ready to ear counter propositions or questions, there was other runs, all leading to 6 to 8 moves victory.

Don't know if its enough ahah.

This puzzle also took me a while to figure out.
Looks like the king can escape to a1 or a11.

The 8 moves refers to the king’s escape to a11.
Where black defending d11-d2 with a5-a2:
d11-d2 a5-a2
d2-b2
b2-b9
b10-c10
b9-b10
c10-c11xb11
b10-b11
b11-a11

If black defends d11-d2 with c4-c2 and white moves b10-b2xc2,
then white can win in a1 with a guillotine or shieldwall.
Sorry, im not going to explain the move sequences.
Or if black makes a mistake then white can also win in a11 or k1.
