    Wasnt it much better to take the queen

    Taking the queen with the bishop means that the next step (Ne6) is no longer mate. So unless infinity is less than 10, the answer is no, it wasn't better to take the queen.

    black would have lasted longer if 1...Kxf7.

    nevermind...there are three possible outcomes that lead to checkmate in 5 moves.

    After 2. Rb7, black replies with 2. ... Nf6 protecting the d7 square and averting the mate.

    @Hlrhaadi. Nothing is "killed" in chess - just captured..

    You can only move once per turn so there is only one choice- the move that you make.

    Not by force it couldn't.  Only if black cooperates.
