    This position Black to play.


    I'm pretty sure you won't get it. It's pretty hard.

    Black played 3...Ng1-f3.
    White then castled Black on the Queenside even though the b8 Knight was still there.
    (Black also losses his Queen which was sitting doing no harm to no one on d8)
    Black in turn castled White the h1 Rook stamping on the f1 Bishop.
    The b8 Knight then disappeared in a tactical trick I'd love to learn.
    The fun eventually ends with 10.Na7 checkmate, except it's not checkmate.

    The whole game looks like one of my chess YouTube vids.

    Move 6 where the knight was made invisible seems to have worked in white's favour rather than blacks.

    The magic d-pawn!

    it's like a chess problem: correct this pgn.

    My first ideas:
    - the d-pawn is actually a knight, but visualized wrong --> how did it get there?
    - later in the game, the black king enters a square attacked by whites e-pawn. What happened here?

    Its mate because the black king is blocked by the invisible knight on b8.
    (Easily overlooked by a less gifted white)
