White to play

In this rather unclear-looking endgame, Black resigned after just two more moves. Can you find White\'s winning idea?

Very good! You hit the solution right on the head! I guess this puzzle is a little easy for you guys coz I had some difficulty answering this one.

To recap:

1.Nd7+!!

1...Kf4 avoids mate but after 2.Rf6+ Rxf6 3.gxf6 Nc7 (3...Nd6 4.e5) 4.f7 Ne6 5.f8Q+ Nxf8 6.Nxf8 the extra piece decides the game.

2.Rf6!
