Many years ago I saw a beautiful combination in a chess column. If my memory serves me right, it was played by one of the 19th Century masters (probably Adolf Anderssen). While I do not remember the exact position I still remember the combination. So I have reconstructed the position and embellished it a little for the enjoyment of readers.
In the following position the White knight is attacked by both the rook and the pawn. But that鈥檚 the least of his worries. Right now he is going to be mated next move. What can he do?
White to move
