flashcards (set 1)

I have been doing flashcards of the 5X5 positions from blokh's book (the author of Ct-art). I have lost the answer keys to a bunch of them and I'm having trouble solving some. During the next few days I will be posting them on the website to see what you might think the answer is. In each case white is to move.

    #498: 1. Rxg7 Rxg7 2. Qg8+ Rxg8 3. hxg8=Q#

    #496: 1. Re8 Rxe8 {R6xf7 2. h8=Q} 2. fxe8=Q+ Kxe8 3. h8=Q+

    Those are the critical lines as I see them.
