O.k. one more time....nc8,nd5,qb4+(this prevents pf6)...if nxq,rook mates if k.e8 ,rxn(attacking blacks q. and stopping q.from moving to a black square and helping e7 mate) so pxr or q. to g6,h6 allows qe7 Mate ...if black does neither-rd8 mate. ...if-same seq. and black plays k.g8 after rxn,pf6, (black gives up n.& q.?) bb3+,qf7, rd8 mate-----there is no escape ! WELL DONE,excellent puzzle.
