hi all, im using a single chip computer and it wont do stockfish. why does it matter what square the king goes to ?

here is puzzle: lichess.org/training/61514

bothers me that i cant see it even now that i know the answer.

It matters because on the other squares the opponent can sacrifice his rook to help his bishop prevent your pawn from queening.

thank you. its very subtle. i would never get in a game
