The Pin ...Breaking a Pin
Puzzle #3

White's Bishop (Bf4) has Pinned Black's Knight (Ne5) against the Rook (Rb8).

White has also done what's suggested, and piled up more Pieces against the Pinned Piece (Ng4, and the Qg3 waits behind in Battery formation).

It's White's turn, and 1.d3-d4 will add a fourth White unit applying pressure against Black's Ne5.

After White's move (1.d4), can Black break the Pin? If so, how?
