    Funny thing is, my first thought when I saw the puzzle was, Ba8 would be just so nice.

    1. Ba8 Kd4
    2. Rc7+
    ... Ke4
    3. Rxc5 dxc5
    4. d6 mate
    ... Kxc4
    3. Rb7 Kxd5
    4. Rb4 mate

    Yeah. Problems have come full circle - now moves like 1.Ba8! are more obvious, because it "looks like a good key".

    Boden's Mate, for those that know it... for those who don't, try and solve. (It is not forced). Black to move and -+

    I think its difficult to see the material-gain-move if you dont know the mate idea. Still nice though
