why move pawn???
It is forced. Only valid move.
finally a good one...
The only trouble with this puzzle is that it uses few enough men that you can solve it with a tablebase.

What if instead of 2...Ka2 black moved a2? Would he have then forced stalemate?
I think you're right!!
No! The knight would have come down to b3 on the very next move and checkmated him!
That was something different for me.
