    I tried going Qf7 last move two time for the first puzzle but it just said incorrect until I did almost every other reasonable move but all were incorrect so i decided to try Qf7 again and it finally worked.Undecided

    Really easy & there is another way, 1.Qxc6, Rxc6, 2.Rf8, Kg7 or Kh7, 3.Rf7#.

    Stopped by 1...Bf5.

    then 2. Rxf5 if pawn takes the rook then Qg6 mate, if instead of pawn takes, and the rook takes the Queen then Rf8+ and then rook on f1 to f7 will follow and is also checkmate. So I think that Qxc6 is still winning unless i missed something.

    Oh yes, 1. Qxc6 Bf5 is still winning for white.  1...Bf5 stops white from reaching the puzzle goal of mate in three though, as it will be a mate in four.
