    3. Rc8++

    1 Ba7 and then it depends on Black's move.

    Fore example:

    1. ... Ra1 2. Nc4 and after that 3. Nb6 mate

    1. ... Rd1 2. d7 and after that 3. d8Q mate

    1. ... Rh1 3. Rh3 and after that 3. Rh8 mate , etc

    Very interesting and rather  hard puzzle. Thanks.

    If you move Nc4, a1 puts you in check no more 3 moves.

     There are many variants in the puzzle. One of them:

    1. Ba7 Ra1 2. Kc4 and after any Black's move 3. KB6 MATE.

    It's hard to find 1. Ba7 with zug-zwang.

     Because a1Q+ , pay attention on pawns positions !

    Nice puzzle - lots of different possibe approaches to preventing the mate, but none seems to work.

    2. Rh3 is followed by h1 = Q; then 3. Rh8+ QxR

    That is not a solution.
