This diagram or puzzle or whatever it was did not load.

1...Bg6 is the only way to meet the threat of 2. Rh3+.  The purpose of the move is to shield black's king from white's g7 rook (2. Rh3+ Kg5).

I saw 4.Rh6# and played that, but it rejected me. Can't these puzzles have multiple solutions?

nice!

nice job

easy

Why couldn't it be Rh6# also and not just Rxh7#?  Someone please help me on this.  I will greatly appreciate it!!! :)

two rooks can move

Rh6 is checkmate.  The puzzle can only give one solution.  Perhaps Rxh7 was chosen because it gains an extra pawn while checkmating.

what kind of person doesn't have their rooks developed at this time of the game, black diserved to get checkmated.

There is another soln . In the last move the other rook can also move . But it is not approving that move
