Rolling Along

The new schedule is working out better. I must still be feeling a bit lazy, and I seem almost resistant to reviewing the Queen fork/pin circle drills and openings. It's as if I want chess to somehow play on its own. I realize how absolutely ridiculous that is of course, but apparently I have a wishful thinking brain part that cannot help itself.

Tasc Chess Tutor: Step 4, 12a #4

There are several bumps along the TCT Step 4 path, but none so difficult for me as this one. This pothole has to be one the most forcing, least ambiguous problem in Step 4 (once I you know the answer that is). Still, seeing it the fifth time around its clear that I just don't think this way. Not yet, at least. The answer is a forcing Rook check and sacrifice: Rc6+ Kh7 Rc5! threatening mate if Black takes the a7 pawn, or similarly Rc6+ Kh5 Rc5+! forking the King and Rook. Either way the a-pawn promotes, or worse things occur.
