    I didn't see them when I posted my solution - but I still like mine.

    I got so excited by the potential of mate that that's all I thought about.

    Let me set up a board.. It's hard for me to see more than four, five moves just looking at the monitor...

    2 I meant 2 b4, but of course that isn't possible because of e1Q. I'll try something different and just shut up.

    1.b4+ looks good, as it is then a forced mate in 18 more moves.

    However, from the original position, white has a mate in five.
