Cecil's Saturday Puzzle - April 26, 2008

White to mate in 4 Breuer
Hmm, mate in 4.
I personally am not going to spend much time on this one, so I set an engine on it.

The first move is 1. Ba7, Black must reply 1...f6
so 1. Ba7 is now a clue to the second move, as otherwise 1. Bb6 would be just as good.
2.Nb6 - the point of Ba7 - Black's only move is 2...Ke3,
then 3.Nc4+ and 4. Nd2 #
