Subject: Position from local chess club

Hallo everybody,

nice to be back at chess.
This week we had a position from our local chess club in our very local
news paper called "Wochenblatt". They show easy positions to get some
interest in chess.
Here the latest.
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    8  |   |   |   |   | *Q|   |   |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    7  | *P|   |   |   |   |   | *P|   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    6  | *K|   |   |   |   |   | P |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    5  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    4  |   | P | N |   |   |   |   | K |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    3  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    2  |   | N |   |   | B |   |   |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
    1  |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
       +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
         a   b   c   d   e   f   g   h
Or if you want the FEN: 4q/p5p/k5P/8/1PN4K/8/1N2B/8 w

Now I gave that position to a computer (crafty).
The output was:
16->   3:39   1.60   1. Ne5+ Kb6 2. Nbd3 Qe6 3. Kg5 Qf6+
                     4. Kg4 Kc7 5. Bf3 Kd6 6. Be4 a6 7.
                     Nc6 Qf8 8. Nc5 Qf1 9. Nb7+ Ke6 10.
                     Nc5+ Kd6

Is this a clear win? A score of 1.6 is not very high.
What do others think?
Kind regards
Bernhard
