overrated problem.

The obvious move is correct

If 4...Kf6 5 Rf7#. 4...Kf5 5 g4+ (idea Qxg6+) 4...Kg4 5 Qxg6+ and I do not see the forced win after 4...Kf4 but I'm sure it's there. White Q can check from g5, g3, f3 and white R from f7 or d4. Got to be a mate in there somewhere.

I don't see the forced win

"Problem taught me that i'm dense." LOL. Qa7 for me too!

I was worried about g4 next, but then Rg6.

@chessisajedrez is right: e6 is mate in 3, Qf6 is mate in 6 (crafty only rates it +0.83 below). Not fair.

4 years after is always a bad prob

Asks you the same question twice! If Ne2 is right the first time, how can it be wrong the second?

good point @luffyanderssen

e5

Ah, in that line 2.Qh3 seems just as good which is why this problem cannot extend.
 
2017-10-19 22:33:14grom431836Problem p45633
Obviously, Black must recapture w Bg7 when 2.Qh4 wins. If 1.Qh4 right away, it looks as though White still wins. But not as forcing.

Wait, what, Crafty? I play Rxd5 without any hesitation or doubt. How is Nb6 better? That is how I found Nd7+ to start anyway. For the extra move available to N-fork K+R.
 
2017-10-19 22:20:38grom431836Problem p63218
Actually...3...Ke8 4 Qc6+ Rd7 and now 5 Qa8+ seems equal to 5 Qc8+ (unless I'm missing something obvious) with Bb5# to follow. No Bf1, but the Be2 could also mate on 3...Kc8 next move. Not a bad stopping place given the complications.
 
2017-10-19 21:58:15grom431836Problem p33067
4.Rd3! and not 4.Ba2+? or 4.Rc1+?! I also played 2.Be2 today. Nice problem.
 
2017-10-19 20:35:54azizazadeh1247Problem p40281
macdevos has got it perfect. 4.Rab1! is key to white's attack, since if 4.Rf3 right away, black has 4...Qxa1+ 5.Kh2 Qe1! 6.Rg3+ Qxg3+ 7.Kxg3

1 star because it's aborted before actual 'pointe'.

I think I calculated all the relevant lines, but simply couldn't evaluate the resulting positions correctly and made the wrong choice (exf5). It's most frustrating when it is your judgement that fails. It makes your guts hurt.

Or, "snap-forward".

@floreatdunum said it best. But GB rates only on difficulty.

After Rxc6 dxc6, axb4 wins.
