    Ill help you out…White can win with…

    Ba7 (you’ve all got this far at least…) a) Bc3 Kc2 Ba1 Bd4 Bxd4 Kd3.

    But…there is also b) Ba1 Kb1 Bc3 Kc2 Ba1 etc…

    (This is because white must control the d3/e4 square for his idea to work, black of course has to prevent this..)

    So we have..

    c) Ba1 Kb1 Bc3 Kc2 Ba1 Bd4 !!

    And now..

    1) exd4 Kd3 ! Kh5 h7 Kh6 h8=Q.

    or 2) Bxd4 Kd3 e4+ Kxd4 and wins.

    (Again, but remember that its very important to control this square) Note: Kh5 doesn’t work because of: h7 e4+ Kxd4.
