Cordingley puzzle 244 #chess

White to play and win

 

 

Solution

 

A bit of a rest day. 1 Rg7+! is an obvious breakthrough sacrifice, and there are not many branches to calculate.

My own task was slightly harder: the diagram in the book itself has the black rooks at d8 and e8: it doesn't change the evaluation, but means that there are one or two more lines to calculate, with the king now having f8 as an escape square: but if it goes there, the Rh4 goes to f6 (from h4).
