I got stuck fairly early on this one... after checking it a few times I felt the breakthrough could come from the bottom row (or 3 rows...).
All I managed was to finally place one black square in the bottom row, but no breakthrough yet...

???
Is the next move realy in the three bottom rows? if so, what is the exact logic that allows it?
...or is it just an oversight somewhere else?

Help is appreciated...

Thanks,

Arik

Column 9 is a pretty safe bet to have the lower 7 trapped on the bottom. Shouldn't be hard to find a contradiction in the assumption that it's not.

OK.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I managed to find the contradiction, and drew these 6 black squares. Unfortunately, it had very little affect on the situation (unless I missed something) - any additional suggestions / observations?

Thanks,

Arik
