    Maybe it's just the dropping of the h7 pawn.

    Was thinking maybe a typo 2Kd3 instead of 2Kb3, because after Rxh7 if black attacks c-pawn, and exchanges into pawn endgame it is lost. Black doesn't need to do that though, so even there win not obvious to me.

    i checked it well TwoMove ,

    it was indeed Kb3 there.

    looks like it is a no solution problem..

    TwoMove

    Yes, you are right Kb3 was move found game now. Think idea is 2...Rc6 3.Rxh7 Kd6 4.Kb4 then pawn endgame is lost after 4... Rxp 5RxR KxR 6. Kc5. Otherwise white wins by moving king towards c-pawn to promote it. 2Kb3 looks slightly sadistic move, because 2Kb5 was more obvious way of going towards c-pawn. Looking at it now 2.Kd3 doesn't look very good at all Embarassed.
