1.Kf3 closes off Black's one remaining escape square (from g4+ or Rf6+)

1. ...  h5 would forestall g4+ from being checkmate, but 2. Rf6 would be checkmate.  sooo....

1. ... Bd6, is black's best move.  It provides an escape square from 2.g4+. and it prevents 2.Rf6+. Maybe white will blunder and capture with the pawn, leaving the escape square and blocking the rook from f6.  But white doesn't blunder; he captures with 2.Rxd6, threatening Rf6# or g4# on the next move. 

2. ... Ne4 is the best black can do, preventing 3.Rf6#.  But white still has 3. g4#;  Black has no way to prevent it
