White should still win but it's not mate in 2. Rh2 follows.

Easy puzzle. You have to just block the Black King's only escape squares which are on the 6th rank to force a checkmate with h4#.

Cool didn’t know that!

Nope. Black will sacrifice the rook with 1. ... Rg2+ to win tempo, with White's only response 2. Kxg2.. Black's King can then escape to f4 or f5 avoiding your h4# mate. 

 

This is how @tingtong99 would play (see note):  1. Rd6 Rg2+ 2. Kxg2 Kh4 3. Rxh6+ gxh6 4. Kf3 Kxh3 5. Ke4 h5 6. Kd5 hxg4 7. Kc6 g3 8. Kb7 g2 9. Kxa7 g1=Q+ 10. Ka8 Qc5 11. a3 Kg3 12. a4 Kg2 13. a5 Kh2 14. a6 Kh3 15. a7 Qc8#
