    obvious win for WHITE because... pawn takes knight mate

    Maybe I'm just slow, but why doesn't this work?

    1. c7   nfd6

    2. c8=B (Or Q or whatever)  Bd4!

    BxB7 isn't Checkmate, and Nxb7 isn't stalemate because the bishop isn't guarding b8 anymore.

    Obviously there are a bunch of variations white can play out, but with the huge lead in material it's a clear win for black. 

    So what am I missing? : D

    i think isis white promotes to queen, and after bd4 white plays Qb8 with seemingly unstoppable 'stalemate' threat of Qa7.
