    not reading previous posts gives me chance to annlyze puzzle myself,i may make mistakes in my annalogy,but the idea is not to find out from someone else,s post.maybe i should but i am trying to improve my game through experience,not from finding out from someone else,thats why i try to solve puzzle,put in my two cents,then find out by reading all previous posts where my annalogy was correct or incorrect,it may be bothersome to some people,by being repatitious but it works out best for me,experience is the best teacher,so if i seem like my annalogy was allready addressed,i apologize,and thanks to all of you that take the time to answer people when they are incorrect,your thoughts are deeply appreciated

    To be honest, I had to use an engine to find the explanation.  But as you can see, taking with the rook results in a quicker mating sequence that is completely forced.

    Thanks for this Explanation.

    Interesting puzzle..... So much trading

    I tried this position out after rook takes bishop and same result ... checkmate. It took me about 9 seconds to check mate chessmaster with this position so it is not really that good of a move as you can see.

    Checkmate. Black is trying to survive as long as he can, so he needed to block with his queen.
