    on fmrko26's puzzle rather than black moving the bishop black should have moved the queen to f5, white is down pieces and can't afford the trade, if white moves away from the trade the black rook to a1 will put too much pressure on the white king

    that would open up A8 for the white queen which shortens the mate...

    on move #2 black Q to c7 is way better than sacrificing it for nothing...might not have prevented checkmate but still way better
