Qh5 also works here.

No, it doesn't. What do you do when Black plays g5? Certainly not a mate on the next move!

@timothy_xie I like flashy stuff, so 14...Rb1+ 15. Kxb1 Qb4+ 16. Kc1 Qb2# does the job as well! (Note that in the game white could have delayed the mate by 15. Qxc3) But a very nice lesson against going pawn-grabbing early in the game!

Yes, it does, but it's slower (by one move).
