    Remember white is a rook down, plus a pawn, in the original position so simply recovering the rook with a bishop pair advantage is not best.

    When I examine something like this, I never assume a blatant mistake such as the opposing player leaving the rook out there for the taking. It was not a worthy "sacrifice". Why would I plan on such a bad move as the opposing knight move (Nc6) when the black rook is screaming "get me outta here!"? I must be missing something because others seem to be impressed. Hmmmmm!

    If the rook moves instead of 2...Nc6 then 3. Bxb7 wins the queen immediately, unless 2...Rd1+.  Then 3. Rxd1 wins the first rook followed by at least the other rook on the next move.  If 3...Nc6 4. Bxc6 would win at least both rooks and the knight.

    HAHA I just saw the revision, there was supposed to be a knight on h8 so that 1. ...Rh8 wouldnt be possible, it seems there would be no mate in 2 on with the original position, but that is probably still the line I would take lol

    In the revision I think 1. Bf6 can be met by 1...Ng6, holding the critical h4 and f4 squares.  Unless I am missing something, I don't see any mate in two with any first move.  Please correct me if i'm wrong.  Maybe it needs to be revised another time!
