    Find black's move that leads to a win.
    1 ..h6 looks good.

    If white takes the pawn, black mates in 4.

    2 gxh6 g5 3 Rg6 g4+ 4 Rxg4+ 4 fxg4+ 5 Kh4 Rh2++

    Otherwise black can capture white's rook with:

    2 Rxg6 hxg5 3 Rxg5 Kxg5

    White cannot just try and promote his a-pawn as he doesn't have enough moves

    2 a6 hxg5 3 a7 g4+ 4 Kh4 Rh2++
