mate with a pawn is quite outrageous!

nice i liked it, my brain took a different route though (not that its any better)

Your solution's not bad, james, i like it, but it takes more moves. :)

puzzle is so stupid. Just mate him in 1 with the pawn. Why those extra moves?

1.a7?? Blundered the passes pawn

1...Kxa7

Sigh: this is one of those puzzles that looks like it takes fewer moves than it does. The pawn would mate if the white king was on b6 but its not so mate in 1 doesn't work.

I think the puzzle is broken... black has a defense.

 lolz i think that fails on move 5 cause instead of bg3+, a7+ works much better followed by qxa7 then bg3+ then d5 bxd5 mate the proper way to defend i think would be on the move 3 instead of  ka7 play d5!
