Test Your Tactics! -- Solution

A few days ago I presented a tactics problem. Now we reveal the solution to you. 1...Rh1 is the only winning move. If Black goes back to stop the b-pawn then White has drawing lines. But now look at 2. b7 Rxd1 3. Kxd1 Kd3 4. b8=Q c2# Beautiful! It is always nice to mate with pawn, but right after opponent gets a queen is even more special. If 3. b8=Q then after 3...Rc1+ the White King moves to the b-file and Black wins easily here also.
