Really strange one!
I dont get it......
Sacc the bishop and knight to make a promotable pawn - white gets his king in front of his pawn with initiative - wins by zugzwang. Sacc the knight so you may get your king onto a corresponding square. Sacc the bishop in the corner so blacks king must leave a corresponding square. Exchange your passed pawn for the knight, and black can't answer due to whites initaitive and better square.
Hmm I think we should some more FUN-damental endings Lol
Fantastic. The bishop move to a8 is the only move to prevent a stalemate. After the exchange of the pieces, white has the opposition, so really it is a simple win in the end.
