After 3. Rb8 Rc1+ 4.Kd2 Rc2+ 5. Kd1 a1=Q 6. Rxb4+ Rb2 7. Rc4 Rd2+ Isn't black better here?

I don't think so. Queen against rook is very diffucult to win and now white also has a bishop, so it look drawish to me.

But in a match this is a position you defintly play on for a while with black. (Hardly any risks involved and white has to proof he can defend it)
