White to move. How should white proceed?

It’s color reversed.
Happy Birthday to your sister Judit

b) 1...Kb8, 2. Rh8+ Qe8, 3. Qxe5! winning Black Queen and Black Rook, too.
This one is not overly difficult. But it will test your ability to logically assess the entire board.
We all know that 2 Knights vs a King is a draw. But ...
This is from a real game between Mastrovasilis, A - Marechal, A
This is a very famous Reti endgame
R+N v R is usually a draw. But sometimes it is not the case.
This tactic is all about patter recognition
White is down in material and has to be very precised
This is one of those must know endgame pattern
For those who do not know the patter, this will be about calculation for you
