    Note to the Editor: This is one of the few REALISTIC and beneficial excercises/puzzles as of late. Really, dumping your Queen 6 or 7 moves prior to a mate! LOL

    If it's a forced mate rather than an uncalculated risk or jump into the unknown, then what is unrealistic about sacrificing a queen for a mate?!

    I think you meant to say "this was an easy puzzle, not like those harder ones"!!

    Kg3 ??? see black will answer with Rg1+! Look at the first white king's move. 

    1...Rg1+ 2. Nxg1 Kxg1 3. Rf5 Kh1 4. Rf1#

    And that even finishes it with one less move!!

    You got white and black notations mixed up there, but this line actually makes sense, because it doesn't seem there's a way out for black after 3. Kg3, although black will make it take longer via 3... Rd2, followed by Nxd2 etc...

    Why wouldn't you just capture the rook after it was ignorant enough to put itself in your rooks path?

    citizenoftheworld91 answers your question on page 10, and maybe others as well.  After a disasterous RxR by white it is stalemate!  White places his rook one file down (4th file) so that black cannot put its rook on the same file, because that square is defended by the white knight.

    Illegal because white is in check.
