    White's last move was c4 (not e4 since wBf1 had to get out and be captured by one of the black pawns). So: 1...b:c3 2.~ c2#.

    Yes, that's right. 🙂
    But why must the Bf1 be captured by a pawn and not by an other black piece?

    Because there are 10 white pieces missing, and the black pawns made 10 captures.

    Dawson's tree makes the holiday rounds very well, even after all these years.
