Qxc6 works as well
Stopped by 1...Bf5.
What's wrong with Qxc6?
Oh look 2nd
mated in 3 steps
if 1. Qxc6, Bf5 i thought Rxf5 would work but that's in 4 not 3 because then Rxc6 and then mate with the two rooks
At first I too thought the same.. but 2)...Rh7 would delay the game, and it ll become mate in four1. Qxc6 aim is Qxf6# 1... Rh7 2. Rf8+ Rxf8 3. Qxg6+ Kh84. Rxf8#
