Your final diagram is still a very difficult endgame AFAICS. How does red win? I can see two plans, but both still require careful calculations.
1) Using the red miner to exchange the blue miner. Once achieved, the red general has a free path to the flag (but see my last remark in this post). Blue defense: if blue moves his miner to A1, can the central blue sergeant then not block the red miner from exchanging? And, ultimately, will the right blue sergeant be able to pick up the red miner?
2) Using the red miner to defend the flag from the blue miner while attacking the flag with the general. Blue defense: open the flag position, and racing towards red’s flag with the central sergeant as soon as the red general passes.
Can you give some concrete variations on how red can win?
Final remark: most likely, blue’s flag is on J10, but you can’t be sure. Say it’s 98% on J10, 1.9% on J9, and 0.1% on J8. Can red afford to probe J8 with his miner? After J7-J8 (bomb) I10-I9 J8-J7, red has lost a tempo compared to your variation. If this doesn’t throw away the win, eliminating J8 as the flag position should be done, wouldn’t you agree?
