What’s the solution?
White to move. (How did black’s King get to a1?!?) Look for forcing moves.
1. Rg1+ Kb2
2. Rg7 (threatens b7 fork) Bh3 (if 3. Rxb8 Bg2+ forcing 4. Kxg2 leading to stale mate or draw with careful play)
3. Rh7 Bf1
4. Rb7+ Ka3 (if 5. Rxb8 then Bg2 etc.)
5. Kf2 Bh3
6. Rxb8 (if black can manage to get white’s light B off the board, there will be a stalemate with precise play)
Black’s best chance to win comes from promoting the pawn. For white, why 1. Rg1+, followed by 2. Rg7? If Rg1 is met with Kb2, that improves the position of the black king – Kb2 is a better square for the king in regard to escorting the pawn to a1.
