    I was thinking the same thing. And does anyone know why 4.a4 is wrong please? I don't see how both mate threats (b4/Bd2) can be defended.


    Thats what I was thinking too. Think it is a perfectly viable option as well, just not the solution


    oh please you guys, these quesions have been answered at least 5 times in the previous pages and really it's not impossible to see providing you dont jump to the conclusion that the puzzle is "busted" (per another poster) or has multiple solutions... it doesn't and it's documented all over this forum.  Take that as a fact, and now s

    Yes it is, axb3 is mate because of the discovery by the rook on a1.
