    Yes, the full line would be:

    1. Bf6  Rg8, 2. Bxg7+ Rxg7,  3.Rd8+  Rxd8  4. Rxd8+ Rg8  5. Qxd8#
    (or 5. Rxd8#).

    The point is that black must respond to a check on the three next moves, and  he doesn't have the chance to delay the checkmate with a Queen sacrifice at g2.

    Exactly.  Do that, or take on the vulnerable g7 with the Queen and make it mate in 4.  Either line is shorter than the six.

    Yes, 1.Bf6 Rg8, 2.Qxg7+ is better.

    6D > 7D forces black queen to move into an awkward position, or get eliminated by a tower.

    When the black queen moves, 7D can move to 7F - and that seems to be game.

    Many ways black can answer that.

    One line:
    1, Rd7  Qb8, 2. Rxf7  Qxe5, 3. Bf6  Qxf6,  4.Rxf6  gxf6, 5. Rd7  Rg8.....

    I just don' see 1. Rd7 winning,

    Thank goodness you understood that notation duff cause I didn't get that when I first read it lol.  Great analysis duff!

    One thing I would add FJwith is that White's back rank is weak as hell.  

    From 1. Rd7 the queen could also sacrifice outright 1.. Qxd7 to kill off momentum of the attack and use the pawn to pressure the back rank and add a promote threat

    There is so many ways to go from there, this is just one line, but this takes two rooks away for a queen and really takes away a lot of White's attacking power.  1. Rd7 just kills the momentum.

    not a really a checkmate puzzle, before people get mad, here's my reasoning

    checkmate puzzles usually force the opponent into a checkmate, meaning that the opponent has no possible option other than making those moves

    for example, the bishop move in this solution could be responded by moving the e8 rook to g8, checkmate in '6' is automatically shut down
