    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.

    Really? two pawns is all it takes?

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