    urmmm, that is sooo stupid, saccing a rook for a pawn!?!?

    f5 pawn is pinned by Q,you still get Q,but for R, 1.Rg4+...Kf6, 2.RxQg7...KxRg7, 3.Qxf5...Rhhe, 4.Qd3...? That's as far as I could see,It does not look like white has an easy win!!!

    Rook is not taked as the white Queen has a pawn pin,More important when black moves the k. , white wins w/ RXQ.....

    Did you read what I said? I said RxQg7 on second move after 1.Rh4+...Kf6, 2.RxQg7...KxRg7,move 3 and 4 were just a line I started to see how puzzle could continue!!

    Okay, I take his queen.  But the game must be played out. 

    At first I was imagining...
    1. Rxg4+ Kf6,   2. Rxg7 Rh2+,  3. Kf3?   Qxg7 .... and all white has done is exchange his rook for black's queen - a material gain but not a sure win. 

    But then, on second look I saw:
    1. Rxg4+ Kf6,   2. Rxg7 Rh2+,  3. Kg1!  (threatening the rook at h2 and thus allowing 4. Rg5  --  Looks like a win)

    --------
    But, let's look at a different line:
    1. Rxg4+ Kf6 (or Kg6),  2.Rxg7 (or Rxg7+)   Kxg7, 3.Qx f5,  ---  Now there are several variations
    (3. ... Rf6, 3. ... Rg6, 3. ... Rhh6,  3. ... Rfh6,  3. ... Rhe8)
    Stacking the rooks looks to me to be black's best ploy, but that leaves the white queen free to attack the King from a number of directions and the kingside pawns can now play a role.
