Why not 2. a5xb4?
Crestfallen - axb4 axb4 Bxb4 Rxa7... if you already saw that then there is more in the analysis & source
Masterful bishop trap.
this was tough, though +8 for me
To a discovered attack Black will lose his Knight. Yes, hmmm.

Can't Black play Bb6 instead of Bxb4 ?
party in the USA
b coz of axb4 axb4 Bxb4 Rxa7, the knight is hanging
Saw pretty quickly the bishop possibility (as well as Rook takes knight with axb4), but committed a quiescence error, after the bishop retreats to d6...went back to it and got -8 for my 2:46 minute rumination. Another badge.
Thanks for the tip, bondtwo. However, who does cheating at tactics trainer really hurt? It's just an idiot being idiotic.
Haha... that's a good list. Is there anyone in the 3000's in TT that is in the 2000's in any chess.com game rating?
You're the sheriff, bondtwo.. go get'em!
Since I think comments only get removed when someone is banned for cheating, it appears that our friend bondtwo, who was scolding people for cheating, has been banned for cheating.
nice trap missed.
nice discovered attack tactic
I tried Na4 with the same idea... it fails to the bishop on e8, unfortunately...
