Test your chess: daily chess puzzle #6

Black to play and win

L Bousan v N Van der Nat 2000

Not too hard today, since the Q and R are overloaded. 1…Rc1! and if 2 Qc1 Re4; 2 Rc1 Qd4+; 2 Bh7+ Kh8.

Another reason today is a bit of a rest day is that 1…Re4! wins similarly: 2 Qe4 Bd4+ and best is 3 Kh1 (3 Kg2 Ra2+ etc) when simply 3…Qc6 leaves black a comfortable piece up: but 1…Rc1 is crisper.
