    cant we do Bf6+ Rxf6 Qxf6+ Qxf6 Rxb8 Qd8 Rxd8# or Qf8 Rxf8# 

    That does work but after Bf6 black would probably play QxF6.

    Nice puzzle.  Puzzles like this are why the Daily Puzzle is under the learning tab. :)

    Actually, after 1.Bf6 black plays 1...,Kg8 avoiding the whole line.

    Nice puzzle, harder than the last few. Made harder by trolls such as Anishrs1 though......

    This requires some thinking. First two moves held me up. Like some others I tried 1.Bf6+ as the most likely first move but taking the bishop isn't the best response - both result in forced mates. Rather, wouldn't black play 1...Kg8 - what does white do then ?
    1.Rxb8 is best beyond question because  it pins the black rook on that 8th. rank if black plays a different line of defense with 2.Bf6+ leading to mate in a couple of moves. 

    The blocking move by the bishop is inspired & strips black of it's ability to defend both the back rank & g7 at the same time.

    And all this was done in a real game - Wow !
