But with a capture on g6 as the key you are on the right track, slowbut2. Just find out with which piece to do it.
2021-01-27 11:40:03, by problemist
Well, what is your move on 1. Bxg6+ Bxg6+, slowbut2? Note that 2. Re5+ is not allowed as White is currently checked by bBg6.

before my seeing others’ comments: My easy-come solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and “(?)”]: in view of the following possibility\s:::::: three checks by bishop before south-rook checks\\ ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, it seems [ reverification is intended later on and before seeing others’ comments] that white's bgsix starts

2nd Commendation. A Bohemian threemover showing three R-sacrifices. Not 1. Rgxg6? Bxe6!, but using the other wR 1. Rexg6 (threat 2. Rxh6+ Kxh6 3. Rh7# (model mate)). On 1.. Rh8 the switchback 2. Re6 (threat 3. Re5#) Bxe6 3. Bg6# (model mate) and on 1.. Bg8 2. Rxg4 (threat 2. Rh4#) Nxg4 3. Bg6# (model mate). Reprinted as No. 390 in Pachman's "Vybrané šachové skladby" (1979).

Vladimír Pachman (* 16.4.1918 in Bělá pod Bezdězem, † 8.8.1984 in Praha) Czech composer and Grandmaster in composition, see wikipedia cs, de, it, lv, ru. "Vladimír Pachman is the brother of o.t.b. GM Ludek Pachman and the great-nephew of Bohemian composer Josef Cumpe (1868-1943). Vladimír composed about 1200 problems and studies, most of his problems in 3 or more moves. He was granted the title of International Judge upon the creation of the title in 1956. He edited the problems columns in "Ceskolovensky Sach" and wrote many books and articles. The following ones can be downloaded on the Internet:
"Problémový šach - Výběr 100 trojtahových úloh Františka Matouška" (1950) about F. Matousek's problems;
"České zvonky z Prahy" (1958);
"Šachová úloha" (1953), a treatise on direct mates with 239 examples, mostly three-movers;
"Vybrané šachové skladby Vladimíra Pachmana" (1979) about his own problems;
An article in Schach 1959: "Über das Wesen der Böhmischen Schule" about the Bohemian School;
Article in EG 61 (1980) "Logical Studies".
The quality of Pachman's works is high; he could include strategic and logical elements in Bohemian problems."
