Selfmate in 3

This week's problem is a selfmate, by a man more famous for his endgame studies, but who was a superlative all-round composer. As with many selfmates, White has a great degree of control, with Black having few legal moves. It looks as though there might be a possible mate involving forcing Black to play cxb5 or c6-c5 discovered check, but how to do it exactly?

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.
