I've got 1.Kd2 Bg3 2. Kxe2 Nc3+ 3.Kf3! and a draw can be made wherever the Bishop decides to go. Then when I was sure it was winning, I checked with Fritz who says that Nc1 is holding on for a black win; I cannot find a way to draw for white after 1...Nc1. I assume my variation is the one he wants, unless someone can find the draw after Nc1 - which I can't do :'(.
