Rg7 maybe?
if KxR Bb2
if QxR Rg5

but that's probably to simple

RRB's picture

1.Rg7 Qg7 2.Rg5+ Kh6 (2...Kf6 3.Bb2++-) 3.Rxg7 h2!
4.Bf8! - h1(Q)+ 5.Kb8! Qh2+ 6.Kc8 Qh3+ 7.Kd8 Qxh4+
8.Kc8- Qh3+ 9.Kb8 Qh2+ 10.Ka8 Qh1+

11.Kxa7! 1-0 (move ur h-pawn!) real fun to solve!

Very interesting. After 4.Bf8! h1Q+ 5.Kb8 is necessary as 5.Kxa7? 6.Qa8+! Kxa8 is stalemate. 8...Qf6 loses to Rf7+, with careful play by White. It is a very cute stalemate prevention idea.
