    Sorry, don't know how to put in the position in a fen.....But, black king on b2 pawn on c2 and white king on d4 with queen on e2..With black to move




    They give solution as 1..k-a1 2. q-d2,k-b1


    But, doesn't k-a1 2. k-c3, c1=queen and k-b3 with mate on a2

    Or am I horribly missvisualizing something as usual?

    thanks for that ua...So does anyone see a problem with my idea of mating on a2 after k-c3-b3?
