## Solutions

1) 1.Qxg6 White can capture the pawn because the knight on e5 is pinned by the bishop.
2)Black is losing the pinned bishop as it can’t be protected
3)White plays his bishop to h3 (Bh3) and pins the rook. After that he captures the rook and wins easily as he is a piece up.
4) White plays bishop to c4 and pins the queen.
5)White plays d3 and wins the knight as it cannot escape because it is pinned by the bishop.
6)White moves the Bishop to c4 (Bc4) and pins the rook and captures it afterwards to gain a material advantage.

7) Black moves his bishop to b6 and pins the white rook. After this he will capture the rook and will win the endgame as he has a passed pawn on d5 and is a pawn up. The white g-pawn is weak and the black king might go there later on to capture it.
