In general, mates in X don't have mainlines, usually just unique first moves, and sometimes unique combinations of a pair of moves.

I don't have any idea of what presumably is the "mainline" on this one.

  1. Rc6 O-O-O
  2. Rxc7+ Kxc7
  3. Qc1#
  1. Rc6 Rxa1
  2. Nf6+ exf6
  3. Re6#

  4. Rc6 bxc6

  5. Qf1 e2
  6. Qf8#

  7. Rc6 bxc6

  8. Qf1 O-O-O
  9. Qa6#
