Fastest (province-emptying) Win

There are quite a few articles showing how the game can be won by emptying 3 piles, this one here does it in 1.5 turns, but how about winning the game the old fashioned way by emptying the province pile? The options for doing this have increased tremendously since Adventures, this article does it in 8 turns with no Events using double kings court bridge. But of course we can do better.

I've got it down to 4 turns with these two strategies, if you think you can do better or with less Events, please post below:

Method 1:



Turn 1:
Draw 5 coppers (17% chance for 5/2 split)
Buy Summon, gain Bridge.

Turn 2:
Draw 2 coppers and 3 shelters.
Bridge in play, KC costs 6.
Buy Advance, trash Necropolis, gain KC.
Buy Bridge.

Turn 3:
Draw KC, Bridge, 2 coppers, and anything else. (21% probability).
KC Bridge. Buy KC and Bridge for 5.
Dontate. Trash everything but the two KC and 3 bridges.

Turn 4:
Draw and play double KC and 3 Bridges.
+9 Buys, +$9, and all cards cost $9 less.
Pay off 8 debt from donate, buy 8 provinces. Win.


Method 2:



Turn 1:
Draw 5 coppers.
Borrow 1 coin. Use coin token from Baker.
Buy KC.

Turn 2:
Draw 1 coppers 3 estates.
Don't play coppers, buy Alms, get Bridge.

Turn 3:
Draw KC, Bridge, 3 coppers. (4.3% probability).
KC Bridge. Buy KC and two Bridges for 6.
Dontate. Trash everything but the two KC and 3 bridges.

Turn 4:
Draw and play double KC and 3 Bridges.
+9 Buys, +$9, and all cards cost $9 less.
Pay off 8 debt from donate, buy 8 provinces. Win.




I'm sure there's some way to increase these probabilities. But I'll hand off the baton to you folks here.

Turn 1: #7497379 if you ignore the passed turns until I had the starting hand I needed.
