Thanks :)

Hmmm... Question is first "why" dedicated to me ? :)

Where does this position come from ??

At first sight my 'instinct' says it's completely winning for White, of course... could be there a trap !?

Ok, let's give something (thinking) on h6, then a rook... line is quite forced, but there's an intermediate check 1. ...Qg4+ 2.Kf1 Qd1+ 3.Kg2... Bc6+! 4.Kh2 Qxh1+ (4.Kg3 Qg4+ 5.Kh2 and the 2nd rook is useless.), but check is no more possible if 1.Nxh6... gxh6 2.Rxh6 Nxh6 3.Rxh6 then... then...
