    Rxg7+ looks quite strong.

    1.R7b4! looks safe enough - White is a piece up and secures a comfortable win.
    EDIT: 1.Rg7+ Kg7 2.Rb7+ Kg8 3.Qxf6 Qxe4+ 4.Kh3 seems to win faster.

    There are a bunch of wins here. 1. Qf5! intending Qg6 wins as well as 1. Rxg7+!

    Yes it is!
    My game went like:
    1. Rxg7+!!(if I may annotate so ) Kxg7
    2. Rb7+ Kg6??
    3. Qf5#

    This is how far I got on my analysis
    1. Rxg7+ Kxg7
    2. Rb7+ Kg8
    3. Qxf6 Qxe4+
    4. Kh3
    And black is hopeless so anymore calculation seemed like a waste of time and I'm very lazy too.

    And if
    1. Rxg7+ Kh8
    2. Qxf6 Qxe4+
    3. Kh3 ...
    And black is lost whatever is move is due to the threat of the double check Rh7+!

    Yes Qf5! also wins. My first canditate move was ilywrin's one but then I saw Rxg7 analysed it and didn't ponder any other move at all.
    I guess what was important in this was the material advantage after all.

    But still I pat my back for seeing a good move.

    Bxh6 looks just a sound as anything.

    Rxg7+ is forcing because it's a check, whereas Bxh6 means we have to look at the response Qxe4+, etc.

    its still winning...
    I think...
    Kh3 Qe6+ Kh4 Qe4+ g4 and then I think white's safe
    ok, that doesnt go anywhere...
    Qf5 or Rg7 are best.

    actually, it's mine.
    Just didn't want to cause a fuss.

    Well, since the game in question was mine and I played the move I'm guessing it is my move.

    Well ok, I will give you equal rights. But if I had been in that position I would have also played it so in a way it is both of our moves.
