    The king should take the rook not the bishop, then when black gains a queen, you push to gain your own checkmate.  Not only that on move 6 black just walked right into the checkmate.  Overall a poor puzzle

    Unfortunately, 4.Kxg4 does not lead to mate in 7 as stipulated, e.g.
    1. g7+ Kh7 2. Kg5 Rf4 3. Be6 Rg4+ 4. Kxg4 Kxh6 5. g8=Q a1=Q 6. Qg5+ Kh7 7. Bf5+ Kh8 8. Qh6+ Kg8 9. Be6#

    Also, Black's 6...Kh7 is forced.

    Overall a poor analysis.

    Another line I looked at was

    1. g7+  Kh7
    2. Kg5  Rf4
    3. Be6  Rf8
    4. gxf8=Q a1=Q
    5. Bf5#

    A really nicely balanced position, ideal for a puzzle. If this had come from a game, it would be interesting to see what blacks last few moves were, and whether they were too eager to promote, or if the position was always lost...

    I sort of stumbled into solving this one after making a couple of wrong moves. I never would have got this in a real game.
