1.g4+ Kxg4 2.gxh6+ Kxh5 3.h7 Rxg7 4.h8Q

Black can give a series of check after 3.h7.

Bringing the white king to a5.

But then I think: Rxg7, h8 Q.

Yeah JustBe, but Black will run out of checks eventually, leading to Rxg7 h8Q.

Then it becomes a matter of taking the pawn and it becomes a Queen vs. Rook endgame (my least favorite Endgame).
