      Smiley didn't log in from 5 March . His location is Queensland - this i think is near the floods in Australia. I hope, he is well and there are only problems with Internet connection.

    There is a position in my notebook and i don't remember anything about it . I think that it is a puzzle, because there is a note " white to play and win ", but there isn't  any solution there, and looking at the position, i can not find it . 

    Somebody to help ?

    Bb5+ would be my guess, but I don't know if 2 bishops against 1 is a win

    Great ! Cool - there is no salvation for black in this line !  This must be the solution !  And what if  3...Kf5 instead of 3...Ke5 ? (edit - white easy win after 3...Kf5) 

    A friend just call me to say he knows this puzzle - the author is N.Kralin .
