the long way around
Some might even call this puzzle the reach-around!!
I agree with dinokiller - I think that Ba4 is a better second move
with Bc2 next - the only move that postpones mate is Knight to B4, when the pawn takes the knight
Excause me, here is an another opinion.
When White Moves Bishop (Ba4), Black kicking White Pawn with Bishop (Bxd4) . To open the (c) file for (a8) Rook and taking a Strategaicl Defensive Position. Otherwise King could escape by (Ke5), when White third move would be (Bc2).
Solved! I had to struggle a lot
You haven't. No worrying and care. Just solve it quietly.
