    I reached this position during a game on uchess.com (no I WASN'T BLACK!)



    white to move and I called the position won for white. Was I wrong and black couldve salvaged it?

    btw black's previous move was h6-h5.

    Qg7+ Qxg7 Rxg7+ Kh6 Tg8 and white wins a bishop.

    EDIT: you edited your post 3 sec after i replied to it

    still, i'm asking if black can survive, not white's best move...

    and yes I did play Qg7+

    the sequence that played out was 1. Qg7+ Qxg7 2. Rxg7+ Kh6 3. Rg8 Kh7 4. R1g7+ Kh6 5. Rxb7 which actually threatens Rh8#

    Yes at first I saw Nf3 Ng5 plan, but naturally Qg7+ is forcing and therefore much better.
