 Two questions regarding today's puzzle
Hi there, once again I would to praise the people behind the today's puzzle, it really is great.

However on today's puzzle I have two questions:

1. Instead of the line: 1.... Bxf2+, 2. Rxf2 Qd1+, 3. Rf1 Rh1+, 4. Kxh1 Qxf1#

Could you not play? (you get wrong answer if you try):
1.... Bxf2+, 2. Rxf2 Rh1+, 3. Kxh1 Qd1+, 4. Rf1 Qxf1#

2. And is it not in fact a mate in 5 as:

1.... Bxf2+, 2. Rxf2 Qd1+, 3. Qe1 Qxe1+ 4. Rf1 Rh1+, 5. Kxh1 Qxf1#

It really is not to

Actually it's a mate in 5 no matter how you look at it. White could always interpose his queen first, rather than the rook.
