Nf6 almost plays itself:1. Nf6 gf6 (Kh8 2.Qf8#)2. ef6And now white is threatening Qg2 followed by Qg7#, and also threatening Qxf8 followed by Rd8#. I don't see a defense. Black can capture at f1 and then check with the bishop from a6:2. .....Qf13. Kf1White can win with 3.Rf1, too, but black can then play e5 still foiling both mating threats. Now black must continue with the checks:3. .....Ba6Connects the rooks and foils Qxf8 mating threat, and gives time for Kh8 foiling the Qg2 mating net, but black is down decisive material, and there may still be a forced mate in here somewhere that I am not seeing.

1. Nf6+ gxf6 2. exf6, with a double threat of 3. Qg3 and 3. Qxf8 seems to be decisive.

When someone gives you a position like this, the first move you have to look at is 1. Nf6+. It works, too - 1...gf 2. ef and White has the murderous combination of threats: 3. Qg3+ 4. Qg7# and 3. Q:f8+ 4. Rd8#
