does not work as:

18.Bc6 Rb8 19.Rxc5 bxc5 20. Rxb8 loses immediately to black's Rd1 mate


Nice catch! I hand typed that line to tie the diagram to the Pin topic, but forgot about the Removal element to make the Pin work. I guess it doesn't pay to think too hard at 4 in the morning!

Good point about the back-rank mate. There is 18.Bc6 Rb8, 19.BxRd7 BxBd7, then 20.Rxc5.

18.Bc6!! takes advantage of a possible Pin to get a Rook outright.

18.Bc6 Rb8 19.Rxc5 bxc5 20. Rxb8 plays into the Pin

18.Bc6 Bb7 19.Bxd7 Bxe4 avoids the Pin but loses a Rook anyway
