Lincolm, Dangcit is correct. 1. Bg1! Rd3!!

I can't seem to find a way to cover both d3 and d4 so as to cut off escape routes.  Each time I cover those spaces I end up opening others.  This is a hard one, Asorski.

Adriandmen

Now I got it. First I was thinking about 1.Qc5 threading 2.Nf2#. But black can defend with 1...Rd4!! making an escape route for the king. But 1.Qa7!! pins the Rook (so after 1...Rd4 2.Qxa7):


Great puzzle Asorski. This is one of the best puzzles I've ever seen.

Nicely done, Adriandmen.  I looked at Qa7 but missed the Qh7# if Rd4.  And nice puzzle Asorski.
