When ahead, stay ahead

Game: Leif Fjallheim v Julia Ostenssen - Uppsala Young Champions 2019

Black is two pawns up with a passed pawn on a5

White's knight is tied down defending the pawn on d4

However, Black now needs to move the king out of check.
Which escape square would be best - f7, h5 or h6 ?

🤔 Play the game to check your thinking

👍 In the next game Julia is playing an opponent with a much higher rating. How did she go ?
(White's last 5 moves are worth a look !)
