    Nice, good puzzle. side note, does everyone wait until the moment the puzzle is about to be taken down and try to get "last" or something?

    Because 1. Rxf7+ ...Kxf7  2. Rf2+ ...Qf5 ( ...Kh8 3.Qe6# ) 3. Rxf5+ ...Kh8  4. Qe6#

    Why doesn't black play Kg7 on the return of the first move?

    He doesnt take the rook becasue then rg2+ forces kh8 which leads to qf6#

       If Black played Kxg7, as you suggest, what would you play next ?  

    I got the answer - if black played Kxg7, then mate in 3 - Rg2+, Kh8, Qf7#
