    This would never exist in a real game, no player could leave the white queen  where it is to start off with, it would just get taken.


    Maybe Black's king was on g8 and the queen could not be taken because the f-pawn is pinned by the bishop on b3.  So Black played Kg8-h8 on his last move to threaten the queen and arrive at the problem position.  Seems fairly plausible for a real game.


    Fair point, seems as though there'd be better things to do than Kh8 


    Maybe, but look at his pieces -- who even does that with their rooks?  Black is obviously not an experienced player.  "Kick the queen by breaking the pin" seems about the right level of sophistication.  What's kind of interesting to me now that this has been brought up is that white would not have had to see a potential forced mate coming either.  He's a piece up -- no doubt the previous move was Qxg6, exploiting the pin.

    bishop f6# would have also worked as last move


    No, the queen can block and then it's a mess.

    What is the fasciation with going for a perfect checkmate with the least Number of moves? Why bother? The object is to win. 3 moves vs 4 moves? The sun will still come up tomorrow.
