    Still getting the hang of this position editor. I couldn't nest any subvariations.

    If 1....Ra7 immediately, not 2. Re1? Rd7+. Instead, 2. Re6. Then white can meet 2....Rd7+ with 3. Rd6, or 2...Kb5 with Rb6+.

    yes a-pawn on 6th rank, got it, inserted diagram from what you described,

    and what if Rook does not capture a-pawn, draw?

    ? That is a white a-pawn, no? 2...Rxd6 loses the rook. But with the knight on d6, white can't defend the a-pawn with Re6. So it seems natural to go after the a-pawn with 2...Ra7.

    I like how the puzzle involves multiple themes. White can threaten to protect the pawn and consolidate (with Re6), win the rook, or mate black on the side of the board. One sideline is 2...Ra7 instead of 2...Rd6. Then I suppose the idea is 3. Re1! Rxa6 4.Rb1+ Ka5 5. Kc5
