    It almost seems that black king should have gone to F4 on move #2 instead of taking the pawn.  Can someone tell me the disadvantage of defending that way (other than stalling so white can promote pawns?)

    Check out post #58 for the solution to 1...Kf4.

    This was an excellent puzzle today. The first 2 moves were routine but moves 3 and 4 were more thought provoking.

    I asked about why black queen did not take rook.  Duh!  Oh, course.  Thanks to all who answered, particularly slowhare who provided the moves and alternative moves.  That WAS a sly puzzle.
