why not King takes pawn, Black forced to b8, then promote to queen for mate?

------------------------------------

Because Black could then move to a7 and then that would be a mate in 3 rather than a mate in 2.

Why not Q-b5 
--> Black king has to go to a8
Promoto to queen => Checkmate...
Right?! 

 

1. Qb5      Ka8
2. d8=Q+   Ka7
You can now get a mate in 3 (3. Qdb8#), but it was a mate in 2 problem.

Then... It would've been stalemate if it was queen or rook.
