Qh5-A5 is not the only mate in 2. Qh5 to G7 will give mate next move, no
matter what black does as well.

    1. ... Bd7: 2. Qc4#
    1. ... Be6: 2. Qa7#

- If Rd8 moves:
    1. ... Rd7: 2. Qc4#
    1. ... Rd6: 2. Qc4#
    1. ... Rd5: 2. Qc4#
- If Re8 moves:
    1. ... Re7: 2. Qc4#
    1. ... Re6: 2. Qa7#
    1. ... Re5: 2. Qc4#
