|Oops! Forgot to say that it\'s White to move. Sorry about that.||-|

|am thinking that|
3.? is the correct path
need more time

|I see the idea, keep checking the king with the rook on the 7th rank and the black king will be forced up the board. A6 looks a safe square for him though and force white to allow a non check move, then the black queen and rook will come into play.|
If, instead, 1.Ka8 then c6 becomes the black king escape square.
but all blacks rook moves need to be worked out. I need more time as well.

|it becomes obvious that white must keep checking or lose.Therefore the black king will head for the rook trying to escape checks||-|

|I get something like this.|
7.Re7+ and black has to go back to d5 because
7...Kf6 8.Re1+ Kg6 9.Rxf1 Rxf1 is a draw.
black can also go the other way.Like this

|Now It becomes clear why the puzzle has a bishop.It becomes necessary in the end.||-|

|Well done windmill. It\'s not an easy puzzle but you got the solution right! Sorry for the delay in confirming your solution.|
If 4...Ke4 5.Re7+ and Black\'s king may not step onto the f6-square due to the discovered attack with Re1+.
If 7...Ka5 8.Rb1+.
With a draw.

|As per Windmill\'s second line, if the black king tries going the other way, you get this.|
