White is down by a lot of materials. Black is about to Queen. White has to do something!
White to move. How should white proceed?
a) 1...Re8, 2. Qf6+ Qg7 (forced), 3. Qxg7#b) 1...Rf7, 2. e8=Q+ Rf8, 3. Qxf8#
c) 1...Qxh4, 2. exf8=Q+ Kh7, 3. Qg7#
e7 wins easily .
By the way this variaion is intresting:
Arein22, you are wrong because 3.e8=Q+ Kg7
1.e7 Rg82.e8=Q Rxe83.Qf6+ Qg74.Qxg7#
Addition to my analysis below:
Be sure to find the main line in addition to the more prosaic wins- in other words, also find black's best moves, too.

Long time commenter Cortex gave me this puzzle here on Susan's site in 2014 or there about as a challenge.

What can white do with this attack?
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
