2. e6 for white is faster

No!!! 2. e6??? (losing move) f6! - (Black can take ALL OF THE WHITE PAWNS)

 

2. e6??? f6!, 3. c5 Kxf5, 4. c6 Kxe6 - Black can stop the White c6 pawn and White loses. 

I figured that out later, you are right.. That was a hasty comment.. Thanks

Can someone explain to me the reason for 3.e6? I'm assuming it's to get rid of the doubled pawns on the F file but I'm too new to really understand why that even matters considering f6 would block his last pawn.

1. Rxg4+!! Kxg4, 2. f6!! (this move creates the blockade) exf6 (only move), 3. e6!! fxe6 (now the Black e pawn on e6 blocks the Black King’s path), 4. c5 e5, 5. c6 - Black cannot stop the White c6 pawn from queening.

That one is taken from my game.
Hope you liked it!

Why bishop was not placed on G1 before the rook?
