    As FG7 stated:

    Nb3 Qc4 Nc1 he needs a double check:

    AC
    Does FG's accessment hold up?

    It's incomplete information because he doesn't discuss the white move between Qc4 and Nc1. As pointed out by Rincewind if that move is Qd5 then white draws, otherwise white loses.

    Personally, in blitz (5min + 0s/move) (in which I am weak relative to my standard rating) I would be much happier to take the forced after the Qc4 line than to play the immediate Nc1+ even if White responds Rxc1. In the second line I would win the queen but would not be confident of converting that to a mate in less than 20 seconds. If it was Fischer blitz (3min + 2s/move) then I would be happy to win the queen and the +2s/move should provide enough time to win.

    With 15 seconds left, its enough to see ..Nb3+, Ka2 Qc4 threatens disco check and there are no other checks and white cannot mate. To see more means you are taking too long.

    Black to play and win quickly, white has just played a2-a4
    There is probably more than one way to do this
