Not that long
Maybe a win for White.
probably last
well, black has other moves other than Kd3
I think 1. Bb5+ is better... No ?
If 1. ... Kd1, 2. Nf3+ wins. If 1. ... Kd2, 2. Nf3+ wins too. If 1. ... Ke3, 2. Nec2+ wins. And of course if 1. ... Qc4, 2. Bxc+ wins.
No, 1Bb5+ is worse as 1. ..., Kd1, 2. Nf3+, fxg1+, 3. Nxg1, Qe6+ winning a knight and at least getting a draw. Go back through the comments and you'll see.
I don't see how a queen plus a pawn vs. a knight and a bishop is a draw :p
great
You missed a few comments here Srujan:
1......Kd1! leads to 2.Nf3+, fxg1=Q,+ and Black wins
Nice puzzle!
It is easy. But we end up with a stelemate even though white has the upper hand
But JSSC, with perfect play you can force mate with knight and bishop within 33 moves.

Well, in this case, if white manages to hold out after the line given above, there is no way for him to win the black queen and still have enough material to mate assuming black plays somewhat decently with his queen.
it couldnt be easier
no good
