    Picking the right first move was a natural; I hadn't even noticed black's interposition defense.  Fortunately there was the pawn in place to protect my 2. Rb4+ second move.  So I was able to "solve" it a move at a time, but I must confess I didn't see the entire sequence from the beginning.

    How would I have played it had I not had the pawn at c3?  I'm going to analyze a bit and come back with the answer.

    Doubling Rooks on the a-file and helping yourself to the pinned Bishop looks like a good way to start - there's no tearing hurry with the material balance the way it is. :)
