White to move! Is this a win or draw? How should white proceed? Please write out all the moves, or as long as you can. This is NOT a 1-2 move puzzle!

  1. e4 Kc5 2. Kc3 and white will penetrate in the opposite direction to the black kings move.

eg. 2. ... Kb5 3. Kd3 - e3 -f3 - g4 -h5, with Black two files behind and clearly lost

This puzzle makes me think of the movie "The Hunt for Red October"- on the American submarine, the captain needs to go down a ladder to another deck, and he calls out, "Make a hole!"
