    I think you need to keep the h-pawn with 1.h6, with the idea of following up with R8 and h6-7-8, using a skewer tactic on the 7th rank. Eg 1.h6 Rxb5 2.Rc8 Rh5 3.h7 and wins. If black approaches the rook you just go to the a-file and the tactic is renewed.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.
