  Sneaky: I don't think there's a win here.
Jun-17-04  hollowone: The draw has to do with Ne3 keeping the king in perpetual check, since he can't escape the knight's attack without either abandoning the pawn or blocking it.
Jun-17-04  PinkPanther: The knight just moves from e2 to d4 (repeatedly) and the pawn can't queen.
