Endgame magic: Restricting the opponent's King

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

Continuing our series of endgames, here's a nice study. Restricting the opponent's King can be a job in itself but that's usually the solution if you can find a series of tricky forced moves. Of course your calculations must be based on an underlying idea.

White to move and win. Can you work it out all the way? Enjoy!
