Everything is very nice and the proposed 'solution' includes wSa2 which is pretty useless in the proposed 'try'. But the facts are a bit different. Nevertheless, the whole content presents a fine mechanism.

It is indeed very nice, but 1. Bd2! seems to be the solution and 1. Bxa5? is the supposed to be the proposed try which fails because of 1. - Rc1 2. Rd4+ Kxd4 3. Dc5+ Rxc5+ 4. Kb4!

Oh, Roland, you are right - the phases was reversed. It's corrected now. Thank you!
