Beautiful. This was from an actual game. I can't imagine myself able to ever setup a position like that except by accident.

Useful exercise.

I worked it out as:

1. Rd1 Rd2+ 2. Rxd2 any 3. Rh2#     or

2. Rd1 Rd2+ 2. Rxd2 any 3. Nf3#     or

3. Rd1 Rh3  2.Nf3+ Rxf3 3.Rxf3 any 4.Rh3#

Main problem is to clear f3 for the knight. Great end to a game!
