? I didn't get it
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.
Many of the moves are wrong
This isn't even logical, why would black move his king from b3 to b4?
real nice lesson.......
Move 4. Bb3 can the Black King just take it? or is doing that a tie?
First time! Sorry I should say that
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?
Love the fourth move; took me a minute there. Nice puzzle !
Because that would result in a stalemate.

I seriously found this one to be hard.
Nice one, but I did a good job! Only grabbed HELP once!
I don't fully understand move 4, wouldn't the King just take the bishop?
