    I was thinking the same thing. And does anyone know why 4.a4 is wrong please? I don't see how both mate threats (b4/Bd2) can be defended.


      I thought the same thing at first "the puzzle is wrong!" but The annoying 4...ba2 stops it - then i realized that after Bxb3 axb3 discovers a mate very tough puzzle.

    that was a very good puzzle

    beautiful...

    hard

  • #171

    4.a4 can be played.

  • #172

    There is a wrong thing here :

    when you move b3, the black bishop can take your pawn and there isn't checkmate in five moves.

    But if you do a4, then there is checkmate in five moves.

    really good

    pavrey - white takes with the a pawn and mates in 5

    Yes it is, axb3 is mate because of the discovery by the rook on a1.

    axb3#

    4.b3 the solidifies the on-coming checkmate with 5.Bd2#/Checkmate.

  • #179

    But if you do a4, then there is checkmate in five moves. - harrassment if a4 

    then 4.a4 - Bb3 5.cxb3 not mate in 5
