Selfmate in 2

This week we shift genres to the selfmate. White moves first, and his task is to force a reluctant Black to mate him – unlike in helpmates, there is no cooperation involved here, and Black has to be forced into a position where his only legal move(s) mate White.

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.
