If there are better moves (besides checkmate) tell me.
Show me how black got 2 dark squared bishops (The whole game from the beginning).
Promote b-pawn by capturing to a1 or c1. No problem.
On a more important note, why would you prohibit checkmating if this is an actual game?
Sorry about the 2 black squared bishops
Made the puzzle up on the fly
Move 8.... Why doesn't the bishop just eat the rook? No point blocking
if you arent allowed to checkmate then the best move would probably be resign
It could be a draw.
but on the path to draw theres a remote possibiliy you accidentally checkmate
Sounded like the title of an Anne Hathaway musical
