Nice puzzle! And 1st
I believe the rook on f1 wasn't even needed for this one.
How would R-f5 be as a first move? It gives black a good many options, but he has to be careful. Not that it's as good as the mate here, I just wonder how this might end up if played right.
Not sure. I do know that the Rook on f1 is used in case black tries to run interference on f6 or f2
Cause white is still able to take on f6 twice.
3. Rxf6+ Qxf6
3. R1xf2 followed by threats at f6 or h5
nice and easy peasy pie!
