    1. c6 b2
    (1... Be4 2. c7 Bb7 3. Bg2 Ka7 4. Bxb7 b2 (4... Kxb7 5. Kd8 b2 6.
    c8=Q+
    ) 5. Be4)
    2. c7 b1=Q 3. c8=Q+ Ka7 4. Qc7+ Ka8 5. Bg2+ Be4 6. Qh7 looks like a promising continuation.

    See the posted solution. I was basically too lazy to spell it out like he did since it was too easy.
