White to move. Can White steal the free pawn on b7?

  1. No. Black threatens 1...Rxc3+ 2bxc3 Ba3#. IMO White should just play Nb3, when he already threatens the bishop, and can eventually win the b7 pawn anyways, leaving him with a significant queenside pawn majority and probably a slight advantage.
