does black ever win?
No but I've seen him get in a check. It was awesome.

There is other way on 3 moves from white
H g5# - kh8
T h6# - Bx h6T h7# mat
only rook and knight are involved in the mating process...
Seriously dude? So it didn't matter to you that the Bishop controlled the g8 square.
A little more thinking involved in this puzzle, I like.
solving first move
The pins led me to waste a lot of time on 1. Ng5+, but after Kg6 I can't find a thing. Kh8 does lead to a quick mate, though, so I kept bashing my head on it. By the time I finally gave up and looked at 1. Rxg7+ all the pieces were there in my head and as so often happens, the rest took about 5 seconds to spot and 15 more to double-check. Go figure.
I like the twist of the battery on the a2-g8 diagonal being unleashed to control an escape square instead of for revealed check as seems usually to be the case.
I did the same thing. I was like hey, lets go use the pin, and was going down lines involving 1.. Kg6 before getting frustrated and turning attention to the rook taking instead =/
it was a good game
