    OK, it seems to me that on move 5 black could have advanced the E pawn instead of moving the king. There was no stalemate as long as the bishop could still move. I don't see how white could have prevented a pawn promotion after that.

    This isn't even logical, why would black move his king from b3 to b4?

    Move 4. Bb3 can the Black King just take it? or is doing that a tie?

    I've been wondering the same thing.  I read all these posts hoping somebody would explain what I missed there.

    Exploring it a bit more, all I can figure is that Bd1 forces the black king to move anyway and then black loses the pawn at b2, and white will eventually still get a draw.

    why couldn't black take bishop on move #4?

    Because that would result in a stalemate.

    Lame Puzzle. Black king would take white bishop b3 allowing d2 pawn to promote. LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't fully understand move 4, wouldn't the King just take the bishop?
