    There are other possible moves after the first one I listed
    Rxg4
    but I believe the result is the same... white wins.

    1. Rxg4? Bf4+ is a draw.

    Kb1 is the only other move for white I can see that appears to make sense.

    Sebastian gave it away, he failed to hide his move. I chastised the guy in private. 😛

    At first I thought he was just screwing around and suggesting a bad move. When I went back and saw that he said Kb1 I checked his profile to see his rating... he wasn't kidding 😕
