    Will someone please tell me why the black queen cannot take the white rook on d4 and defeat that check move?  Someone else asked this also.

    Because queen moves to g3 checkmate? That's kinda obvious

    what happens if 2...   kf4

    Took me a while to see this: Rook puts king in check, queen takes rook, then queen g3 checkmate.

    I agree with Bryan. There is no such thing as luck in chess.

    Well, I wouldn't say that. A player can make a move that happens to be the best move, without seeing all the lines and knowing why it was best. That could especially happen in a complex middlegame when one of several good looking moves is the only one that gives a winning endgame, but the player makes the move for a different reason. But I believe white knew what he was doing here.

    Even if a beginner makes a winning move by mistake, it is still not luck. Everything happens for a reason.

    That's a perfectly valid viewpoint that I wouldn't argue with. I didn't know that was what you were getting at.
