I observe that
So we have to make sense of the following:
and maybe also the following:
Here is one possibility, which is at least consistent with everything we know:
In that case, the winner of the 14:10 will be
If any corner is white, there aren't enough white cells to avoid 2x2 blues in at least one other corner. Likewise for the cells adjacent to the corners. The last cell in each 2x2 corner block must then be white.
