Mate in 2

Last week's problem was a bit of a stinker, from a solving point of view, so this week, we have a relatively easy 2-mover, but a great problem at that. Viktor Chepizhny, one of the world's finest living composers, celebrated his 80th birthday last month, and this collaboration with another immortal of Soviet problem composition is one of his numerous prizewinners.

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins (our Libarian and Archivist) using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
