Selfmate in 2

This week’s problem is a selfmate. White, to play, must force a reluctant Black to mate him. The battery along the g-file suggests the solution may involve luring the black knight away, but how precisely?

Solution to be published on Friday 17th October.

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