    I took some time to find out that only the top rook was able to sac, since the other one prevents the black king from running down to the h file. veyr nice XD

    If you use the other rook, black can escape to h5.

    Good catch!

      Yes !

    For me it was straight the question: "Which rook?"
    Then I looked to the squares the Black king has left. Also the queen's move was crystal clear to me. That's what leads me to the right choice ... (But the wrong rook is often a theme even in the opening, where it's more difficult to tell what's the "right rook" ... *sigh*)
