  GrahamClayton: White's plan is pretty simple - move the King to g5 to support the f6 pawn, and then play ♘e5 followed by f7.
Oct-23-18  laskereshevsky: Black is in zugzwang. If the Bishop move from the diagonal d8-h4 follow ♙f7+ and ♘f6

If ...♔f7 ♘e5+

Any other potential pawn's move
(b2, e5 and eventually d4) just lose material and prolongs the agony.

May-04-19  Pyrandus: Great.
