Qa3 Nc2+

I'm not sure why you have it 0-1. We want white to win and in move 8 of your diagram, white is winning.

Thanks for the help and extra analysis.

What is the difference between Qa3 Nc2 and Qa4 Nc2? I put 0-1 simply because the thing has not been solved yet.

After Qa4 Nc2 black can play KxP, but now white isn't attacking the queen.

That's a tie, he moved the king like 10 times allready!

Right, right. I read Nc2 and move Nb3 on the board. Sorry about that.

Caiello- No errors that I see: great job spotting those moves: f6! and Nf5!

mrguy888-

all is resolved.

Now all we need to find out is how to win with the queen continually attacking the bishop:

This puzzle is not easy, i will give a hint - the first move is not  Ba1 ...

Rubidium

we can play e5 immediately, but that just transposes.

top2pr , in #1 pawns are black and are going down, not up, look careful the board - there are numbers on the left ...

Nice avatar :)
