White to move:
[fen]8/8/7p/3KNN1k/2p4p/8/3P2p1/8 w - - 0 1[/fen]
This problem comes from Mihai Suba, Dynamic Chess Strategy, and Fritz 8 misses white's best move.
1.) Nxh4 Kxh4
2.) Nf3+ (can fork and prevent the promotion if the pawn promotes. any If the Black king does not capture the knight, then the same fork can be had with Nf3 again and prevent the promotion of the pawn.
At this point, the White King can clear away the c-pawn, and prepare his own promotion strategy. Black's h-pawn is nothing to worry about, because white will promote before he ever gets there.
Then, King can work a way to the pawn, and capture it. And, then work on the other pawn that prevents his own promotional pawn. Not too difficult. Sac a knight.
