what is wrong with this?
1. Rxd7+ Ke8, 2. Rc7+ Kf8 3. Qb4+ Kg8 4. Rc8++!!
If the king decides to go back to d8 in the second move, then Kh4++ check mate!
on Qb4+black plays Bc5#
Also if 2...Kd8 then 3. Qh4+ is not checkmate, as black can defend with 3...f6.
on 2.Kc8 shudnt there be Nb6+(threatening Rb7#) if axb6 then Qa8#??
You need to look at the entire board as black has 2...Bxb6+.
It is written several times:
1.Bxb7? Bd4! threatening mate and unpins the bishop
by the way: after 1. ...b5 white can simply take, while the bishop d7 is pinned.
Oh, there's another one!
Cool puzzle, waiting for blacks oppotunity to win!
