    I got it but why doesn't black take the rook?  It still delays the unavoidable mate... but I just think it makes more sense to take the rook... tell me if I am wrong =p

    I thought that... also, is any reason why black moves his king to the corner after Night F6? Why not move to King F8?...

    First we ask -- what if Black had moved 1. ... Kf8  -- 
    UhOh,
    1. ...  Kf8, 2. Qd6#

    So...
    After 2. Rxg71!  black has several options, but no good ones.

    2. ... Kxg7, 3. Qh6+  Kh8, 4. Qxh7#
    2. ... Nxf4, 3. Rxh7#
    2. ... Nxg7, 3. Qh6  any move, 4. Qh7#
    or, as in today's puzzle,
    2. ... Ng5, 3. Qxg5  any move, 4. Rxh7#

    EDIT:  As ndskyking pointed out, by the time I actually submitted this,I had already figured out what happened if 1. ... Kf8, so the note below should have been deleted.

    Now I want to look at the lines that would follow had black moved 1. ... Kf8.

    I don't think I'm reading the post correctly duff.  It says you want to see lines that follow had black moved 1...Kf8, but you already posted the answer to that, 2. Qd6#

    I think you meant something else?

    Too hasty - played Nh6 like some others. I expected the queen to play a larger part in this one but at least she doesn't get sacrificed-makes a change. Black deserves to be mated just for getting in that state !
