Why the queen have to capture the pawn f7?

Why: 1. Rh8+ Kxh8 2. Qf8+ Kh73. Qxf7+ Kh8 4. Qf8+ Kh75. Bxg6+ Kxg6 6. Qg8#

and not 1. Rh8+ Kxh8 2. Qf8+ Kh7 3. Bxg6+ Kxg6 4. Qg8#

Thanks ;)


I listed your alternate line below, and it does end in Mate.  However, that is only because you have Black playing 3...Kxg6.  The reality is that Black would capture with the pawn instead, 3...fxg6, and then your alternate line falls apart.

Because Black would respond with 1...Qxg4#, and have Mate in one.  White has no way to get the King to safety, or prevent Black from dropping the hammer.  Every move White makes must put Black in check and keep him there until Mate or a perpetual check draw.
