    I think I made 5 or 6 moves correctly. Very tough!

    Yes Kernel, I think 2..hxg6 blocks in the rook and white can safely grab the queen.

    Yes.  I was also wondering about 5...Bd5 as well as 4...Kd7 and if 5. Rd1+ Bd5.  I am guessing both of these lines are winning for white, but they look like they take more effort, in large part due to white's hanging pieces.  It also appears that the d7 square is a very important escape square for black which he wants to leave open.
