White is a pawn ahead, but it is under attack. The material is reduced, and he needs to co-ordinate all his pieces in order to achieve the win. First he starts a hunt for the rook. 1.Bc2 White loads the gun. The rook is in danger. 1...Rxa3+ White will realize the extra pawn prosaically in the line: [1...Kh6 2.a4 Ne6 (2...Rb2 3.Rb1!) 3.Kc3 Nc5 4.Rg4] 2.Kc4+ Kh8 [2...Kh6 3.Rg6+ Kh7 4.Rxa6+] 3.Rh1+ The move transposion is impossible: [3.Bb3? Ra5 4.Rh1+ Rh5=] 3...Kg8 4.Bb3!

The gun is loaded again. Black must give away the rook. Instead he goes for the last white pawn. 4...Ne6 5.Kb4 Rxb3+ 6.Kxb3 Nd4+ 7.Kc4 Nxe2

However, the knight is far away from his monarch, and another hunt starts... 8.Rf1! Kh7 9.Rf2 Ng3 [9...Nc1 10.Rc2+-] 10.Rh2+ Kg6 11.Rg2 1–0
