    Over my head, but that's ok.  If all all we only play weaker players, then we'll only get weaker.

    Thanks for the Puzzle!

    Sure you can improve by playing stronger players, but beating up on weaker players sure can do wonders for one's confidence!

    Could someone explain why black didn't move the king to d6?

    my opinion is: 1.bh5 if rook takes then d6... if he doesnt and plays rc8 then d6 again threatening rd1!!!

    I'm pretty sure black can afford to take 1...Rxh5 and allow 2. d6+ without much worry, and if not 1...Rxh5 then 1...g6, gaining a tempo, is probably better than 1...Rc8   

    Also, white may want to double rooks before pushing d6 to give the pawn an extra defender.  If 1. Bh5 Rc8 2. d6+, the d6 pawn is attacked twice by black and defended only once.

    Actually, after black moves the king and white plays 5. Qxh6, white will be up two pawns, which is even more of an advantage, probably enough to win.

    It might not happen right away, but it should be enough.
