    Yes you can, but then you'll not mate in 5!

    1 Qxh7+?? Kxh7 2 Rf4 Rh8! and how to mate now?
    (If 3 Rh4+ Kg8 and Black is safe!) Cool

    I had to press "help" on the first move. I got it after that. So does that mean I get to say "easy"?

    Doesn't quite work.  If 1. Qxh7+ Kxh7 2. Rf4 Rf8 (or Re8) 3. Rh4+ Kg8, no checkmate.  Black cannot respond to 1. Rf4 with Rf8 or Re8 due to 2. Qg7#.

    Without giving up the bishop Black gets mated in 4 moves:
    1 Rf4! Qf8 2 Qxh7+ Kxh7 3 Rh4+ Qh6 4 Rxh6#

    Now you have an additional move:
    1 Rf4! Bg4 2 Rxg4 Qf8 3 Qxh7+ Kxh7 4 Rh4+ Qh6 5 Rxh6# Wink

    White's plan after 1 Rf4 is crystal clear: 2 Rh4 and 3 Qxh7#.
    Black simply tries to live as long as possible! Laughing

    The first move had me but once you know that it is self explanatory. Very good puzzle!

    This doesn't make sense to me.  Surely black's first response would be Qf8.
