This is a mate in 2 puzzle, so why take 5 moves to complete it!!!!!!
Rb7ch! followed by Rxb6 achieves the objective in good time.....

That's not a mate in 2 since Qxf3 gets the black king out of check.
This place is becoming un-glued.
good puzzle.there r at least 2 other ways to mate in this situation
I don't know what to think. What we had was so special and I miss you- I'm just confused right now. I really want this to work but it's so hard sometimes. I'm torn, I really do care for you but it's just so complicated. Give me some time to think, okay?
Love you always,
Thanks. I needed that.. Great friday ROFLMAO
Out of the five steps only the first three are the important ones. After that, black's rook and queen just try to delay the inevitable. I like the second move.
Those are the only moves black has at that point.
*Note for players:
Even though this may seem pretty simple and straight forward, White has to allways check Black's King (+), or else Black does mate in 2 moves after. Qf3+ .. Kg1 and Qg2++ checkmate.
my personal experience ;) obligates me to make this clear to all tactical end - game players..
clever~ I was more distracted by Queen grabbing!!!
