4.b3 the solidifies the on-coming checkmate with 5.Bd2#/Checkmate.
But if you do a4, then there is checkmate in five moves. - harrassment if a4
then 4.a4 - Bb3 5.cxb3 not mate in 5
nice one! i mistake 2x thiss mate
The first three moves made it look as if the mate was not there. Good one

many ways to solve
what if black bishop takes the b pawn - then it is not mate in 5
Then White retakes with the a pawn, and checkmates via the rook on a1 on the 5th move.
Not so easy...

Got sidetracked here looking for mate in the a8 corner. When I got on the right path, couldn't believe white would sacrifice both knights. That's ballsy ! Solution not at all obvious to me which is how they should be - a good one.
No forced variation.
Good one.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
