    The goal is to construct a position under the following conditions:

    white material: 1 king, 1 knight, 1 pawn
    black material: 1 king, 1 queen

    Neither side is in check, black is to move, and white wins.

    Good luck, bet you can't get it! 🙂

    My first thought is this, but the Queen can take the Pawn (or Knight)

    Black can get a draw here by taking the Pawn with the Queen. Not a solution 😕

    White threatens mate in one with 1.Nc6 mate. Black needs a check to stop it.
    Any check along the the rank will be answered with 2.Nc6+ Black must take
    the Knight and you end up with this position and Black to play.


    And with Black to play that is a White win.
