nice straightfoward puzzle, no queen sacrifice'. and a realistic position
cool cool cool
What is the problem with the Queen promotion? No stalemate due to biship and pawn moves for black. Mate in a couple? Or is it just for the fact of underpromotion?
Never mind!!! Be6+ was explained by slowhare.
Everyone is saying "nice puzzle." So what's nice about it? Its just foolish to me to upgrade to a knight when you could just easily upgrade to a queen.
Could have been:
1. c7 1... fxg4+ 2. Kg3 2... Bc4 3. c8=Q 3...Be6 4. Qb7#

Interesting, I never thought of promoting it to a knight.
