Interesting alteration to the actual position that was reached in the game. I guess it was done to ensure there is only one winning move?

  1. Bd8+ Kxd8 2. gxh6 Nf6 3. Kxb6 and now white is threatening Kxa5 after which the a, d and h pawns are menacing. Black does not have enough to stop all three.
