Default Mate in 5: find it-- 3r4/3qkp2/p2p1b1Q/1prBpP2/4P3/2P3R1/PP6/1K4R1 w- - 0 1

What would you play to get mate in five in the following position? I
played Bxf7, which wins, but not the quickest way.

3r4/3qkp2/p2p1b1Q/1prBpP2/4P3/2P3R1/PP6/1K4R1 w - - 0 1

From the game Lutz-Ftacnik, Germany 2001

Interestingly, in the below position Bxf7 also wins!

3r4/3qkB2/p2p1b1Q/1pr1pP2/4P3/2P2R2/PP6/1K3R2 b - - 0 1
