Puzzle #15: Black to Play; Black to Gaelet

White just played his second to last stone with Sa4. Black has the flat lead, but has 8 stones left to be played. How does Black win? (There are a few options here.)

Just a couple notes:

This is probably the longest puzzle that I've made, let me know if it is too long.

Also, for those of you unfamiliar with the term, Gaelet is what u/Bismuthsnake came up with for a flat win. It mirrors Tinue in that it is a non-real word from Kvothe's world. Gaelet refers to the ruthless moneylenders and seems to fit a flat win due to all the counting involved and the end game maneuvering reminds me of haggling back and forth to iron out terms of a contract.
