The Pin
Puzzle #14

Black's Queen and King are already in a straight line on the a1-h8 diagonal, with White's Queen (Qg5) & Rook (Re7) preventing Black's King escaping onto light-squares.

White's light-Bishop (Bd2) is currently unable to Pin Black's Qg5, as there's nothing to support it.

How can White engineer support for his light-Bishop to apply the Pin, by Bd2-c3, while at the same time ensuring Black's King is stays on the long diagonal with its Queen?
