Default Another bust in Plaskett's tactics book, p.26

See the below. From this position, after Rxh7, Plaskett recommends 2.
Rxg7+, which I also saw, but then says 3. Nf5+ is the best
continuation. I disputed that, suggesting another move involving the
queen, Qh6+, and sure enough the computer backs me--it's nearly 5.00
points better. This is the position: 4r3/
p2bp1k1/3p2p1/1p1q4/2rN1QP1/4BP2/PPP5/1K1R4 w - - 0 3

This isn't a bust, it's more of a cook. If you could show that
Plaskett's line loses or fails to win, then you'd have a bust. But
3.Nf5+ still wins handily. The 3.Qh6+ line is an alternate solution.

An extreme case of this type came up here recently when Offramp
posted a position from Alekhine-Erdelyi, Prague Olympiad 1931:

q5k1/1b3ppp/p5n1/1pb1rB2/6Q1/1PN5/P5PP/2B2R1K b - - 0 30

In this position, Black has 44 legal moves, and at least /half/ of
them are good enough to win.

Good one. Indeed. The PC seems to favor h5 then eventually b4 or b4,
but you're right--lots of options here.
