I have no idea what you wanted to say but after 9...cxb4 10. cxb7 a1=Q 11. b8=Q and black's position is better than any other time during this puzzle.
i was trying to put a diagram to show that even if 9...cxb4 (blax best muuv) white cud stil win. however, blax chances r much higher.
Yes, that's pretty much what i've been saying.
In your diagram, the red line looks good. Slight mistake on the blue. Black should play 7...Ka2, but white should still win. In that same line, also good is 8. Rh1, threatening mate with 9. Qa1 or possibly 7. Rh1. Anyway, white should win with good play.
