I saw this puzzle today. It is wonderful. Too good not to share.
I've seen a lot of puzzles like this one before, and I 've known this pattern ! That's why I solved it easily !!
Anyway, that's a really great puzzle !!
Thank you for sharing it !
Wow! That's easily the best puzzle I've seen. BTW, 100% for me, and I've never even seen the pattern! :O
Very nice! Thanks!
Wow! What a FANCY puzzle!
I, being fancy of course, solved it easily :3
That is a very good puzzle! I enjoyed that. Thanks :-)

This also works:
Then there is the other rook and the f-pawns.
A lot of options in this puzzle. Probably the mates in 5 are the best for white.
Oh, I just realized something. The bishop can capture the f5 pawn, so maybe Re1 is better.
The other line I had with Bb7 is probably still an easy win.
heres a good puzzle of mine
Can you please say us what white tries to do ? (eg checkmate in 5)

Here is another neat one I found:
that would be awesome to pull off in a real game.
