    3. a3 fails to 3..Bf7 followed by 4. b4 Bxb4 5 cxb4 Kxb4, and 3. b3 Ka3 4. Bc1 fails to Kb4

    The moves in your first line starting with black's fourth move are all illegal moves.

    I am surprised that no one commented on the alternative solution

    I gave. 1. Na4+ Ka5 2. Bd2+ KxNa4 3. a3 Bf7 4. Rh3! e3 5.Rxe3  with the threat 6.b3+ Bxb3 7. cxb3 mate,  so 5.... Bc4 (5....Bb3

    6.cxb3 mate) 6. BxBc4  Any 7. b3 mate.   For those of us that thought a3 was a good idea, we were right. Although clearly we should have noticed c4

    Very good one...

    Isn't this a better alternative? Mate in 4, instead of 5.

    If I remember correctly, the correct defense is 3...Bf7.

    What? How? I fail to see how that would be better =\

    3... Bf7 4. b3+ Bxb3 5. cxb3+ Kxb3, no mate in four or five.
