The Pin
Puzzle #4

Black's Queen currently attacks White's Ng3, which sits together with the Bg2 & Kg1, in a "Pin potential" formation (which occurs whenever Pieces of the same color sit on a straight line, whether Flank, File, or Diagonal).

Because of the location of White's King (Kg1), either White's Ng3 or Bg2 is vulnerable to being caught up by a Pin.

How can Black engineer a Pin against one of those two White Pieces, so it includes White's King?

Hint: Remember the REMOVAL OF THE GUARD, from the Solution to Puzzle #3.
