    1.Nh4 Kg1 2.Nf3+ Kg2 3.Nxh2 Kxh2 4.e5 Bxe5 5.Ke6!! Kg3 6.Kd7 Kf4 7.Kc8 wins for white ,also if Black tries 4... Bc3 (instead of 4... Bxe5)5.e6 Bb4 6.Ke5 Kg3 7.Kd5 Kf4 8.Kc6 Ke5 9.Kb7 Kd6 10.e7 and wins
    But 1.Ne1? Bc3 (An important tempo) 2.Nf3 Kg2 3.Nxh2 Kxh2 4.e5 Kg3 5.e6 Bb4 6.Ke5 Bf8 7.Kd5 Kf4 8.Kc6 Ke5 9.Kb7 Kd6 10.Kxa7 Kc7 is a draw
