    Someone help me understand why you don't play 1. Rc7+ Kb8 2. Rb7+ Kc8 3. Rhc7# ? Was the goal to play for a more complicated mate?

    I'm curious about this myself. Are we missing something here?

    I guess technically King could go to a8 and it wouldn't work then. This is the better solution. But I guess you could do Ra8 then Rhc8and pinch that way.

    On the 3rd move black cannot take the white knight, because then the king would be trapped by the two rooks, neat!

    I guess im not advanced enough to understand that. Been wondering about why it didnt take the knight... Cant seem to get it
