    Almost had that in one but who else chose 4.Rh6 ?  So annoying.

    Good puzzle for once.     Smile

    1.Bd1 Rdg8   2.Rgh3+ Bxh3   3.g3++

    ...Doesn't 4. Rh6# work also?

    I didn't get the first move, but then I didn't understand black's response either.  I hope someone can show me a forced mate in four after
    1. ... Rh8

    There are a lot of variations - mostly wins for white, but black seems to be able to prevent mate in four.

    EDIT:
    Thanks, Shoopi, for showing me:
    1... Rh8 2. Rh3+ Bxh3 3. g3#

    A lot of people were confused a bit about white's/black's first move.

    1. Bd1 takes away a critical flight square from the black king, namely h5, and has a mate threat. Here's an example of what happens if black plays a different move:
