    In your line 3...Qxf4 (the most delaying move for the inevitable) allows immediate 4. Qg7#.

    The line i was looking at for a while was...

    1 Bf6+...R or Qxf6

    2Qxf6+...remainding Q or Rxf6

    3Rxb8+...Q or Rf8

    5Rxf8#

    Which is a good line in that situation though the black king has a chance to escape on...

    1bf6+...Kg8

    In that position i still think white is better but does provide an out for the black king.

    Cool

    I mistakenly thought 1. Bf4 was the answer because I had thought it saved time by not exchanging rooks first.  I now see that 1. Bf4 Rxb1 2. Qe7, while threatening to checkmate, allows 2...Rxf1+.  However after 3. Kxf1 Qxd3+ 4. Kg1 black shortly runs out of checks and will then be checkmated.  So it appears 1. Bf4 works also but takes longer.  Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    Hmmm... I don't think so... Qxf2 Rxf2...

    Qxf2+? Rxf2 Rxc1+ Kg2! white wins
