White is poised with a rook and two pawns on the seventh. But Black seems to be blocking a breakthrough, What's White's correct sequence?

1. Rb8 Nxa7! doesn't work, so ...

1. a8=Q! Rxa8 2. c8Q++ Kxc8

3. Kxc6, and mate is unavoidable--

for example: 3. ... Ra1 4. Rc7+ Kb8

5. Rg7 Rc1+ 6. Bc5.

The position after 3. Kxc6 is the stronger side's dream-position in this frequently drawish R+B vs. R ending (Kramnik-Leko, 2007).
