    White's 1st move is crazy to me. Why does not black respond with 1...Rxc8??? What is the catch??? Please someone tell me why.

    I agree Hariharan_Sundaram, black made a lot of bad moves.  That was the hardest part of the puzzle, I'd never guess black would respond like that.

    Well, I don't see them as "bad" moves, but simply "not the best" moves.
    Playing out some of the lines that Hariharan_Sundaram indicated, I still see it as a win for white.  Typically, white pushes it to the point where he has a knight and four or five pawns to black's three or four pawns.  But there is room for mis-plays on both sides.

    There are simply too many possible variations to fully analyze.

    Black Knight could have taken the white Queen in the process. The white moves were quite risky.
