    Firstly, I'm useless at the pgn thing...........

    The puzzle is to find, in 4 moves, how this position occurred...........


    ALL whites pieces and pawns are at start point, except the Kings knight is absent from the board.

    Ditto for black, except he/she has a pawn on d5.

    (My thanks to the person who posts the position for me!)

    Sounds like this is it.


    Just clear up the stipulation.

    Reach this positon after White's or Black's 4th move.
    (or maybe that is the problem....who moved last and prove it.)

    Thanks GP; that is it.

    After Black's 4th move
