    Hee. White has sacrificed both Rooks to reach this position, and now he throws in the Queen as well for the double-Bishop mate. Well done Canal!

    Rook Deflection, very nice!

    Not exactly - because the black king is being forced onto a much worse square from which it can be mated, this is a Decoy tactic & not a deflection!

    First page!  And what's wrong with 2. Qh4+?                 No check..unless rook sac.

    what's wrong with it is that black is ready to launch that mate on a2. that rook move is needed to give white queen the opportunity to mate.

    No! Read first please! 1 Rh8+ Kxh8 (forced) 2 Qh4+ Black cannot check(mate) because he is in check himself!
