The last problem is fairly embarrassing, getting it right and then having a total failure at the very end. :lol: Not all calculating mistakes are made during the first moves, I'll have to remember that!

In the first one, 1... Bb5+ looks a simpler win to me. 2. Bc4 (forced to avoid losing the knight) Bxc4 3. bxc4 (again forced) Nxe2 4. Kxe2 a5 and black wins with the outside passed pawn.

Really enjoying this series of videos by the way.

Thank you for your comment! I guess after the Nxe2 Bc6 line Bxc6 Kxc6 and Ke3 is way more complicated than needed. I think it's still winning, but Bb5 is a much simpler and better move.
