    Same result, and arguably better position. But if the puzzle isn't going to lead to mate, why not harrassing the black queen instead?

    Because winning a piece is better?

    Also, after 1. Qe8+, Bf8; 2. what?

    You do win a piece: the bishop that got away in the "correct" version.

    EDIT: Ignore this. Misunderstood what you meant.
