I immediately tried to play Bxe6, but it was illegal.

What's wrong with 1...Rf7 ? Surely that saves the game for Black?

Ohhhh I get it, it's a helpmate!

I looked at it again and saw 1 ...  Rf7+.  I would recommend 1. Kf1 be given a try. If 1 ... Rg1 + then 2. Kf2!!!!!!!!!!!!

JMB2010

First, calm down on the exclams. Second, what?

At another glance 1. Kf1 fails to 1 ... Rf7+. As a result I would suggest the only plausible move that gives white any chance at all. 1. Ke1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this deflects 1 ... Rf7. Everyone please comment with any help you have.

I looked again. I disregard my previous submissions in favour of 1.Ke3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2.Kf2 threatening 2. Bh5+ and 2.Kxf2.

pawnpromoter01

It's a draw. If 1. Ke1!! Rg1+!! then 2. Kf2!! then 2 ... Rg7!!. It's a draw
