puzzle 79 for beginners
1. Rxd6 Rxd6 2. Qe7+ Kc8 3. Qxd6
The best first move for White is to sacrifice his rook by taking the Black bishop on d6. By sacrificing his rook, White has cleared the e-file to give access to the e7-square for his queen for possible fork. Black has to accept the sacrifice because this line is the best continuation for Black. After this, the White queen delivers the fork from e7 to return the sacrificed rook back, with winning the bishop.

The best first move for White is to sacrifice his rook by taking the Black knight on d3. By sacrificing his rook, White has removed the defender of e5. Removing the defender of e5 gives access for the White bishop to attack from e5. The first line is the best continuation for Black. The second line is the second best, and the third one is a complete disaster for Black because of mate.
