    Shoopi, thanks for pointing that out, I only had a very short amount of time on my clock when this position came up in a game of mine, and so I didn't see the alternative mate.

    Now it is 2 problems.

    I was sure the solution was 1... Rh2.

    1..Rh2 is superior to the proposed solution.
