Name the Mate 1: Anastasia's

It's worth knowing the names of the mates to cement the patterns in your mind and to have a way of talking about the positions. This is Anastasia's Mate. White to move and mate in 2. Stop and solve now. It's the pattern that matters, not the position of the pieces. The Knight check forces the King to the edge of the board and then covers all escape squares after the Rook delivers the final check.
