Nah this is dumb. If Black had played 2... Bxd3 white's strategy would have gone to pieces. They will the hanging rook piece which is the biggest threat to a mate and pin down the knight, giving them sufficient time to promote a pawn

Why not F3 H3??

It forces H2-H3...then E5-F3 mate

Except that White checkmates next move with Nf3.

My first move was Rc3. Why is this not acceptable?

Why can't the bishop take the rook (1...Bxd3)? Isn't that a draw?
