The Pin
Puzzle #6

Black's Ne5 is Pinned against its King, with only its King for protection.

Black cannot move the Knight, because of the Pin; and to move the King would be to lose the Knight, instantly.

White must play his moves to ensure Black exhausts all his Pawn moves (as then Black will have to either resign or move the King away from defending his Knight). How might White go about this?
