1. Qb6? b2+!
Where do all these selfmates come from all of a sudden? Did I miss a memo?
1. Qb6? Bxb6#
1. ... Bxb6#?? is considered a serious error in a selfmate :p in fact, I'm not even sure if it is a "legal" move
Black is trying to not mate white for as long as possible (and yes, heinzie, you missed the non-existant memo). Try this on:
WOW I got it right on the first try!!!!!
That one is better (I mean correct)
And the first one seems correct too. Selfmates quite often revolve around "stalemating" a black king indeed. GG
get_lost, post #10, 3. ... a2+ seems to not mate white.
