The Pin
Puzzle #15

How can White capitalize on the Pin his Rook already has against Black's Bishop (Bd7), which is in a straight line with its Queen (Qg7) & King (Kh7)?

Hint: If only Black's e6-Pawn weren't blockading White's e5-Pawn, it could advance (e5-e6) to attack Black's Pinned, thus paralyzed, Bd7. White would have surplus material attacking the Pinned Piece, which is often sufficient to WIN it.
