    Quite right, which is why Black doesn't play that!
    But instead plays 6...Kc7, giving the position below:

    Ah, very well then (I should have seen that 🙁 )
    7.Ng5! Kd7 8.f7 Ke7 9.Ne6! Kxf7 10.Nd8+ Ke7 11.Nxb7 and wins for 11...Ke6 (d7) is met by 12.Nc5+ and 13.Nxa6 🙄. Hopefully, I've got it this time.

    7.Ng5!? (I would prefer 7.Ne5) Kd7 f7 Ke7, and then NOT 9.Ne6?, because then you won't have a win anymore: 9. ...Kxf7 10. Nd8+ Kf6 11. Nxb7 Ke5 12. Kc2 Kd5 13. Kd3 Kc6 14. Nd8+ Kd5 15. Nb7 Kc6 etc

    but: 9.Kc2! a5 10. Kb1 Kf8 11. Kb2 a4 12. Kb1 a3 13. Ne6+! Kxf7 14. Nc5 Ke7 15. Ka2 Kd6 16. Nd3! Kd5 17. Nxb4+ Kc5 18. Kxa3 Kb6 19. Nd5+ etc

    White is not forced to play 11.....a4
    He can just shuffle his king between e7 and c8.
