1. ... Rc12. Qxc1 Qf2#or2. Qe2 Qxe2+3. Kxe2 Rxh1greets, jan
My immediate idea here seems correct:1. ... Rc1!and this must win a rook, it seems.2. Qxc1? Qf2#2. Qg1? Rxg1 3. Rxg1 Qf2#2. Qh4? Rxh1 3. Qxh1 Qf2#2. Qe2 (enforced) Qxe2+ 3. Kxe2 Rxh1and it's 2R+1N vs. 1R+1N.
Qf2 would be mate if white queen was not on e1. So1. ... Rc82. Qe2 Qe23. Ke2 Rh1wins a Rook.
A case of a weak second rank. Black mates with either Qd2 or Qf2, if only the white queen could be deflected. So, Rc1 plays itself:1. .....Rc12. Qe2 Qe23. Ke2 Rh1 wins a rook.
1...Rc1 2.Qe2 Rc2 3. Qe1 Ng3 and white loses material
1....Rc1 wins outright because the white queen has to protect the f2 square and the rook on h1.
