This is called as the very famous lucena position, white has to build a bridge over here.. protecting the pawn and also avoiding checks by placing the white's rook on the fourth rank. The white King is in front of the pawn which is an obstacle for pawn promotion. So white has to act in a best way possible to the threat.From here can any proceed with the moves ? white has to move.
