Found that tricky but don't know why - it seems as if Black should have some defense but it has none !

Anyone else wonder how that black pawn got to b2 ?

Yes it does look out of place on b2,I guess white had it's own agenda and b pawn was not a threat to white and it's plan of attack,so I guess white made right choice,or maybe white never had chance to take b2

No need to capture the pawn on b2 - White has much better things cooking but I was intrigued at that setup. I can't find any record of this game (or the players come to that) on chessgames.com so wonder if anyone can find this game somewhere ?

Interesting sequence  srathi61, as far as it goes but do you realize there's a much quicker mate at  6.Rf7# !?


Edit: Just spotted this too...   7. g8=Q+ Kd6 8. Qd5#
