Tactics Thursday

Yesterday's position came from the recently concluded Condom GM event, and in a fit of schoolboy giggles, I had to choose a position from this tournament (I was looking for a prophylactic move, but couldn't find one...) Black to play came up with 1..Rxf2 which busts white as he cannot take the rook. The game concluded 2.e4 Rxg2+ (no half measures here) 3.Kxg2 Rb2+ (the point in all lines) 4.Qf2 Qg5+ 0-1 Barsov-Demuth Condom 2011

Today's Puzzle:

White to play and win

Answer tomorrow ;)
