    Should the moves make sense, or is it allowed to do moves that would not be good if you would try to win the game?

    Yeah, i know that one ;)

    IM Klaus Berg showed that one, and one more at the same kind, at a chesscamp this summer :) Klaus told us, that his friend GM Nigel Short showed him them.

    This is a very beautiful puzzle!

    The only way is if Black is giving d-pawn odds.

     

    EDIT: manymercsmike has it. What a sick crux.

    AWESOME Puzzle!!!!!!!!  I got hung up on trying to triangulate the king with a bishop capture to "waste" the move.

    Because black 4th move have to be done to. In your way, black has only done 3 moves.
    As Kacparov said: "It's now white to play his 5th move"
