yeah, thats the alternate, check the move lists to see if there is the alternate there :)

TripleXDooM

sorry, but part three will be shortened (maybe, but most likely) to puzzles 39 - 50

just a fun puzzle:

I love these puzzles. thanks for giving us these.

one suggestion, por favor: if it's 'black to move', then put black at the bottom. why would I try to move towards myself?...that's what therapy is for.

:D

TripleXDooM

haha, sorry i will try to start doing that in the fourth part as i just finished making the third Wink
