too many "!!''s
Not really a puzzle, as black's moves are not the best.
Or maybe just a different sort of puzzle.
black's moves are best except the first one 1...bxa6it only has to deny the mate.. and those are the best to deny!!
black could have continued only with a worse position even if it had not played 1...bxa4.
"it" = "he" !!
