Lincolm, Dangcit is correct. 1. Bg1! Rd3!!

I can't seem to find a way to cover both d3 and d4 so as to cut off escape routes.  Each time I cover those spaces I end up opening others.  This is a hard one, Asorski.

Now I got it. First I was thinking about 1.Qc5 threading 2.Nf2#. But black can defend with 1...Rd4!! making an escape route for the king. But 1.Qa7!! pins the Rook (so after 1...Rd4 2.Qxa7):

Great puzzle Asorski. This is one of the best puzzles I've ever seen.

Adriandmen, not only you have posted your solution, you also provided a diagram for this problem. I feel that you are happy solving this problem.

CONGRATULATIONS to Adriandmen and Geticus. Both solvers found the key move but Adriandmen got it first! The two of you will receive a trophy!

Nicely done, Adriandmen.  I looked at Qa7 but missed the Qh7# if Rd4.  And nice puzzle Asorski.
