These are a pair of positions I composed when trying to test certain bits of logic in my bot. I thought someone else might find them amusing.

Both are gold's turn, what is the result under optimal play? Enjoy!

I believe I have the solutions. Is there a good way to post spoilers in this forum?
Very cute positions, by the way  Smiley

Not hard as puzzles, but still cute and interesting to go through.

No spoiler, but if you think you figured it out in three moves like I did - don't check the solution right away. These are very peculiar positions.
