After 1.Rxe6 if 1...fxe6 2.Rf3 and the queen is pinned. After 2...Qxf3 3.Qxf3+ the extra material and unsafe king should be decisive.

1...Qxe6 is similar.

It won't work. Black would simply ignore you and if you capture black can always recapture with the e-pawn.

Rxd5 wins a pawn

1.Rxd5 exd5 2.Bxd5 queen is pinned

After Rxd5 the only move that doesn't hang the c4 knight as far as I've seen is Ne7 but after Rd7 material is equal but white is much better(bishop pair/more active pieces in general)

Edit: Nb6 also works but white should still be better

This is one of the most beautiful chess puzzles. First move alone is not important, you need to see the full line.

White to move.

It would actually work cos if the white takes back on e5, bxe5 pins the queen!

If white plays e4 black has d4! Which he'll follow up with e5 and black is much better
