That does work but after Bf6 black would probably play QxF6.

Nice puzzle.  Puzzles like this are why the Daily Puzzle is under the learning tab. :)

Actually, after 1.Bf6 black plays 1...,Kg8 avoiding the whole line.

This requires some thinking. First two moves held me up. Like some others I tried 1.Bf6+ as the most likely first move but taking the bishop isn't the best response - both result in forced mates. Rather, wouldn't black play 1...Kg8 - what does white do then ?
1.Rxb8 is best beyond question because  it pins the black rook on that 8th. rank if black plays a different line of defense with 2.Bf6+ leading to mate in a couple of moves. 

The blocking move by the bishop is inspired & strips black of it's ability to defend both the back rank & g7 at the same time.

And all this was done in a real game - Wow !
