    Instructive - though if I was black, I would resign after white's first move

    1.Kf3 closes off Black's one remaining escape square (from g4+ or Rf6+)

    1. ...  h5 would forestall g4+ from being checkmate, but 2. Rf6 would be checkmate.  sooo....

    1. ... Bd6, is black's best move.  It provides an escape square from 2.g4+. and it prevents 2.Rf6+. Maybe white will blunder and capture with the pawn, leaving the escape square and blocking the rook from f6.  But white doesn't blunder; he captures with 2.Rxd6, threatening Rf6# or g4# on the next move. 

    2. ... Ne4 is the best black can do, preventing 3.Rf6#.  But white still has 3. g4#;  Black has no way to prevent it

    In this position,we note the following :

    (1) the position is completely tactic

    (2) king's opponent is completely restricted

    (3)white has the move and thus initiative

    (4)white simply can do mating net

    ....thus black can not do anything except throw pieces for free..and we learn many things from this puzzle but the most important thig is we do not move our king to restricted places on the board...SmileSmileWink
