2013-11-10 21:51:23MaltaCross1278If 2...Kh6, then 3.Qd2+. If then 3...g5, White has 4.Qc2!, threatening the Rook, as well as threatening 5.Qxh7+! 
2017-03-15 12:03:06simoncov1363@MaltaCross sorry to disagree but if 2...Kh6 then 3.Qh4#. If 2...Kf8 then 3.Qd8+ Qe8 4.Qxf6+ with mate to follow. 2...Qf7 blocks the mate but white then has a completely won R vs. Q endgame.
