Yancey_Ward answer is correct after 1.h4 rook cannot be saved if 1...Rf3 2.Qxf3 Bxf3 3.hxg4 However 1.Kxg2 ?? is blunder and missing the advantage of capturing the rook

1.h4 should win the black rook- the black queen has to either play to g4 or h6 leaving the rook hanging. Black can't save things with 1.....Rf3 since white can just capture the queen since his queen is protected by the b-pawn.
