    it's not mate though is it? if not what's the gain?

    white is forced to exchange to prevent immediate mate

    then a pawn will promote

    After k to e6, white's queen to e4+

    After viewing the analysis, it appears that after carrying this line further Black ends up in a much worse position such that Black trades his rook for White's knight, queens are traded; Black's pawns remain where they are while White's c pawn is 3 moves away from promotion.

    Thus we have... a tactics problem that teaches us how to lose?

    Guilecunning:

    the king can't reach e6...did you mean g6? if so

    ...Kg6

    Qe4+ f5

    gxf5+ exf5

    Qc6+ Kg5 and white has run out of ways to keep checking black and has to bring his queen back to stop the checkmate anyway

     

    I will agree, however, that the problem analysis has left me a bit in the dark since the line provided seems to be a huge advantage for white

    could anyone illuminate me on the benefits of this line? It seems to me that the best line following Qg2 would be

    ...Qxg2

    Kxg2 Rxh2

    Kxh2 a5 with no way for white to stop the pawn or beat black to a promotion

    This is not necessarily a forced mate position. After Kg6 then Qg2, Qxg2, Kxg2 and play can still continue.

    It appears the problem is to get to a won endgame

    In the analysis source, from 30. ...K g6, black plays 37. ... Kxg4? Instead, I would have played 37. ... a5 which would promote black queen right after white c file promotion but with a check. Seems to me like a drawn position.

    as I see, it is easily won by black as shown in the solution

    Only if black blunders. (trading rook for the knight is a blunder)

    Yes, thanks Songofdeath.  The ability to promote is the key here, no doubt.
