Instructive - for a beginner, the pin is difficult to see, if it is not the 1st move
1. Ng7+ Kh6
2. Nxf5+ Kh5
Check mate is actually # :/
How much move plan behind the end !!!!!!!!!!
h6 is the key square in the puzzle (if you see that, than the rest is easy)
Even after the whole sequence,I don't see it that way,. There are several "keys," but to me the pawns represent the keys: the fact that the g6 pawn is pinned, is very much a "key" and the power of white's g-pawn to check the black king (with h3 pawn protecting) after black's f5 pawn is gone and black has no escape squares is also "key".
I was lucky to pick the right solution, but there are six moves that will all result in mate in 1. Just move the king off the main white diagonal.
Without Faults :) !!!
checkmate with a pawn is humiliation
Solved at first attempt.
The knight power !
double good knight
