Dumb move

I refer to the Chess quiz of July 20 issue.

The move by the White Rook is pretty dumb, 1 Rg8ch Kxg8 2 Nf6ch...3 getting the Queen How about 3 Black Ne1ch getting the Queen, hence White wins the Black Queen but loses its Queen and Rook, pretty dumb.

Surely this gaffe was not committed in a real game and I'm surprised you guys overlooked this before editing.
