White is down the exchange, but has a passed pawn on e6 that is two moves away from promoting. Black can attack the pawn from behind from e2. Can White do something to mess up Black’s plan?
I tried 1.e7, Re2; 2.Bb7+ and Kc4 is forced, else any King move to the e file obstructs the Black Rook and White promotes. After 2…Kc4; 3. Ba6+ skewers the King and wins the Rook.
I thought that was it, but then I looked for better moves for Black. I spotted 1…Rh2+ and if the White King moves, then 2…Rh8 controlling the promotion square. I was stumped. It took me a while, but then I found 2.Bh3 If 2…Re2; 3.Bg2+! Kc4 (the Bishop is taboo, and so is any move to the e file as above) 4. Bf1! this time pinning the Rook onto the King from the opposite side. Very nice!
White to move. White is down.
1. e7 Rh2+
2. Bh3 Re2
3. Bg2+ Rxg2
Aaron Nimzovitch said that a passed pawn is a criminal that must be held under lock and key.

Nice to see the formal uniform of the Carabinieri.
