    edit: or is white coming down the board?
    edit2: if white is going down the rook up one square- black has to move his rook then queen takes pawn- mate

    nice puzzle, stumped on the other one- haven't really done puzzles before, except in games!

    smells to me like R-c5 is pretty nasty. But just Qxd7+ wins as well,
    RXQ, RXR, KXR, Wh K-b7, how does black stop the pawn from Queening?
    Oops, didn't see that was an incorrect position.
