No!!! It may lead to a draw 

 

1. Rg8! Bc7, 2. Kd7 Bb6

Now what if 3. Rxa8? (Blunder)?

3...Kd5!!! = draw (zugzwang), 4. Rh8 Bxa7 

It’s a draw when it’s a king & bishop vs king & rook endgame. 

Correct move is 3. Re8+!! (zugzwang) 

3...Kd5 (instead of 3...Kd4), 4. Rxa8 Bd4, 5. Kc7! Kc4, 6. Kb7 and White wins!
