Q can take rook on h8 after the Q sack and pawn checks.

why doesn't the queen just take the rook? is she retarded?


The Queen is pinning down the pawn on g3 in the starting position.  If the Queen captures the rook when it goes to the corner, that pawn pushes up to g4 and it's checkmate.  The only move that delays mate is the queen check on c8.  The black pawn push to f5 prevents the g4 mate, so that's why the rook heads back to the corner.

I think the rook takes h7 and mates without taking the queen

Nice one. I almost said it wasn't a good puzzle because the black queen should've taken the rook but even if she did the next move with the pawn would've ended it anyway.
