White to play and win

 

 

Solution

 

Fairly straightforward, since most moves win. I chose the move which Houdini thinks is strongest, 1 Ng7, though to be fair, if I were to give it a long time to think, its assessment of rankings of all the winning moves could well change.

1 e5, 1 Ng7, 1 e8(Q), 1 Rfe1 are all more or less equivalent. White's position is overwhelming and he just needs to break through.
