why not after 2. ... Kxa4 instead go 3. b3, Ka3 4. Bc1?
its to easy
a easy one
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...
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.
Oh, I get it. I was using the same defence. Foolish =) thx !
Got the first moves just right, but the pawn I did not understand until later. gotta learn...
