    I don’t understand why the black king (on a3) doesn’t take the white bishop on b3 instead of black moving its pawn to e4?

    Kxb3 is stalemate. The white King can't move and the game is a draw.

    On black move #4, why not advance the E pawn?

  • #35

    why didn't the King kill the bishop?

    Because white would get a stalemate. But why move the black king away from the B pawn and not advance the E pawn on the next move?
