on move 4 why did black not take the biship @ b3 then get the queen at d1 he can then proceed to get an other queen or rook and  mate White the game.

What a powerful use of the Bishop -- and the King.  I played the right moves some of the time ( I think the first 3 or 4 and then one or two others), but a couple of those Bishop moves were out of my skill range.

I must go back and review the sequence.  The ending, forcing the black King to abandon the pawn at d2 is really sharp.

Er... isnt the point of these puzzles to get black into checkmate? How is this a draw?

More to the point, how can Black promote one of those pawns?

 9. Kc2 Kf2 ( 9... d1=Q+ 10. Kxd1 Kf2 11. Kd2 e3+ 12. Kd1 ) 10. Kxd2 e3+ 11. Kd1

There's just no way Black can get the last pawn past that bishop!

Tough one.
