Keen-eye chess puzzle: White to play and checkmate in two

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Here is an interesting puzzle that you can spend your weekend with. It's White to play and checkmate in two. Hint: Basically there is just one key move that would get you the checkmate in the second move no matter what Black moves. 

This chess study is from Comins Mansfield, American Chess Bulletin, 1953. We will post the answer on Monday (worth the wait) so don't forget to check back.
