    that’s not really solvable is it?

  • Neo Trinity, In the Matrix says:

    Guess it also works with 3.c3 instead of Bd6 but surely c3 would take way too long. nice idea the queen on a1 cannot go across the first rank at all.

    Hi, I found a different solution which I think is much more easier?!

    Bc7+ – Ke4
    d3+ – Kd4
    c3+ – Kxc3
    Be5+ – Kxb4
    cxb5 – Kxb5
    Ba1! – Kb4
    d4 and white will win easily
