    What if the opposition captures the queen with the f7 pawn instead of the h7 pawn?

    moving the f7 pawn places black in check because of the whites bishop on c4.

    Black had no viable options.  His f-pawn is pinned.

    1. ... Kh8, 2. Bf6#

    after 1. ... hxg6,  there is nothing black can do to prevent or interrupt the
    2. Bf6 .... , 3. Rh8# sequence.
