This is a tough one.
The most I could find was a draw.
I'm not sure why you have it 0-1. We want white to win and in move 8 of your diagram, white is winning.
Thanks for the help and extra analysis.
What is the difference between Qa3 Nc2 and Qa4 Nc2? I put 0-1 simply because the thing has not been solved yet.
After Qa4 Nc2 black can play KxP, but now white isn't attacking the queen.
That's a tie, he moved the king like 10 times allready!
Love these puzzles...

how 'bout this?
Right, right. I read Nc2 and move Nb3 on the board. Sorry about that.
Caiello- No errors that I see: great job spotting those moves: f6! and Nf5!
all is resolved.

On this puzzle i will be silent - have a pleasant solving
after 4)...Bb7 how does 5) d6 fair?
This puzzle is not easy, i will give a hint - the first move is not Ba1 ...
we can play e5 immediately, but that just transposes.
top2pr , in #1 pawns are black and are going down, not up, look careful the board - there are numbers on the left ...
Nice avatar :)
white to play and win
