Minor Piece Ending: Position #317

Position:#317

A position from our Level III course on endgame techniques. White's 'h' pawn looks menacing. However, the Black King can drop back to the kingside and hold the pawn, but, that would let the White King chase the Black Knight and maybe promote the 'a' pawn instead.

Can Black save the game?

Incidentally, Magnus Carlsen played 1..Nc7 in this position and lost the game!
