The Luzhin defence

Black to play and win.

Why not 2.Kf2? I guess black is Luzhin either way (i.e. winnin').

2.Kf2 Rxc3+ and then Rxc1 follows but the win obviously is not as spectacular aas when black plays 2.Kg4.

Too bad 2.Kg4 is not forced or does not loss quicker, as then the solution(with 2.Kg4) would be more pretty.
