I don't get it. Why doesn't the pawn take the knight after the first move?

If black didn't make that move it looks like a loss for white.


Well, I can't see any other effective moves for white. (What alternative move for white do you have in mind?) Black is poised for ... Nxf2+, removing the pawn that protects the knight in his current position. Black gains a material advantage which will probably end in a win.

An interesting problem would be with the same setup as in this game, but the black king at h7 instead of at h6.  Now Nf5 is not check, and leaves the Bishop exposed.  So what is white's best move in that situation?  I am looking at 1.Qf3, and wondering how black will respond.  (1.Kg2 is also to be considered, but ...Nf4 would block white's queen from entry into the fray)  The game should end in a draw.
