Actually the puzzle is incomplete because White has NOT won anything yet. Black will fork the White King and Queen, winning the Queen. White still has a few more CORRECT moves that are mandatory, and if not made correctly, will NOT result in a White win. White could blunder, and end up LOSING or DRAWING if the rest of the sequence is NOT played out correctly. Not until White captures the Black rook and ends up a full bishop ahead in the end game is White out of the woods. So, this puzzle is NOT sufficient and to say that White has won after capturing the Black Queen is not correct. White SHOULD WIN, yes, but it is NOT inevitable. Blunders happen all the time.
nf1 wouldn't change anything because
of the following puzzle
Thank you for explaining! That was driving me crazy!
The calculations is not over yet!
The moves 4...Nf1+ 5 Kf2! have to be calculated too!
Now White threatens 6 Qxh6# and if 5...Nxe3 6 Ng6+ Kh7 7 Bxd8 Kxg6 8 Kxe3 and White wins!
