There is a position in my notebook and i don't remember anything about it . I think that it is a puzzle, because there is a note " white to play and win ", but there isn't  any solution there, and looking at the position, i can not find it . 

Somebody to help ?

Great ! Cool - there is no salvation for black in this line !  This must be the solution !  And what if  3...Kf5 instead of 3...Ke5 ? (edit - white easy win after 3...Kf5) 

A friend just call me to say he knows this puzzle - the author is N.Kralin .
