  Sneaky: The old adage of not snatching the b-pawn with your queen proves true again.

Now, Rxb7! is a very good move, but what if Black played on with--for example--Bd6. That would prevent Rxe7+ followed by Bxa8.

I suppose then White could snatch another pawn with Rxf7. Or is there better?

  Sneaky: Oh, I am so silly! ANY safe rook move by White, e.g. Rb3, will win the rook on a8.
