Got hung up on one of the steps, very original puzzle
pretty good puzzle
what if black bishop takes the b pawn - then it is not mate in 5
2nd move was hard for me :/
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.
Fairly difficult puzzle. Step by step and ... a checkmate.
Bxb3 answered by axb3++ as per previous answer.
4 a4 is answered by the delaying move Ba2, which means mate in 6 i guess.
