But its a mate in 3 with 2.Qh7+, Rxh7 3.Nf7#
Those two first moves are impossible/illegal - I think you mean ...
2. Qg8+ Rxg8 3. Nf7# ?
A standard smothered mate, except you're forgetting that there's nothing to stop the king taking the queen 2...Kxg8 & the attack fails !

2nd so close
howd you guys get here before me?
This was kinda very easy
It is not mate if the black bishop moves to C1 after the queen takes the pawn (this puzzle is not an actual mate in 4 moves)
