    Can someone tell me why this puzzle is mate in 6? When I looked at it I saw this variation. Looks like black can last 7 moves.

    It should be a mate in 7. I have no idea why the rook doesn't block.

    If you had actually taken the time to look through the comments, you would have seen melogibbo's diagram on page three which shows that if the rook blocks it is still mate in six.

    I don't understand why black sacrificed its queen for no apparent reason.
