The Pin
Puzzle #2

With Black's Bb4 guarding e1, Black threatens to Checkmate White with 1...Qg3-g2#. Given that Black's King and Queen are in a straight line, the position harbors a potential Pin by White's Rh1-g1 (only Black's g7-Pawn prevents the Pin!).

What can White do to engineer this Pin, and prevent his King from being Checkmated?
