This endgame puzzle was created by Alexei Troitzky in 1896 (White to move and win), and it contains the following 2 winning ideas: Idea 1 (1. Na3+): The knight sacrifice and fork with check to put the Black knight away from the passed pawn. Idea 2 (2. d6): The pawn sacrifice to block the d6 square with opponent piece to avoid the Black knight stepping on it — now you can promote the passed pawn.
