I don't have a chess comp and this problem has driven me mad aswell. I did find the sequence Gadi gave and I was still trying out the various Q-checks. So, Fogged thnx for your Fritz sequence that saves me a lot of time!
But is it a win? I just kept moving the king and rook on the 7th and 8th rank, trying to get the king in the corner. I wouldn't mind if you checked Fritz on 15.Kf8 i.o Kf6.
Thnx.

Neither I nor Fritz, Rybka or Shredder have been able to find the solution to this puzzle. I can't wait for the solution to this one.

1. Rc7-Rb8+ 2. K:E7 - RB7 3. R:B7 - C1=Q 4. KE6+ - KG6 5. H5+ - K:H5 6. RG7 and king cannot escape from the h file.
