570th Brilliant Way to Checkmate

Black to Move

Here's another from Reinfeld's 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate. I had the right idea but messed up the calculation on this one... the devil is in the details! I like when a problem puts together a couple of simple themes and makes something that is tough, so I thought I would post it.

... Rd1+ 2. Kh2 Rcc1 3. Bf4 Rh1+ 4. Kg3 Rh3+ 5. gxh3 Rg1+6. Kh2 Rh1+ 7. Kg3 Rxh3# 0-1

An ego-boosting problem. Took me 30 secs to work out. As Najdorf used to say: "bin Ich nicht genial?"
No answer expected:)
heh...Any problem that takes you more than 15 seconds must be a good problem ;).
Does it matter which rook you check with on move 1? I was pretty sure I had it figured out, though non-forcing moves like 2. Rcc1 always make me think a little extra, but it seems like move 1 could be either rook. Probably I am too used to CTS problems which never have such multiple correct moves.
Good point... yes, either Rook essentially works the same because the White Queen cannot alter the overall position meaningfully.
Great problem! I quit to check endgames Cheap wow goldpermanently in like pertaining to middlegame study. I know that enhanced middlegame enjoy brings about a lot more endgames. Put simply to analyze endgames later if you find any excuses for this than to do it because of the intelligent concern of which "it isBuy rs gold perfect for everyone anyway". It is important that you could workout on the mother board what you research.
