The former world correspondence champion Grigory Sanakoev has sacrificed a piece for an attack on the black king, but saw that direct methods, such as a check on f8, don\'t lead anywhere as the black king can escape to the center. However, he had prepared, no doubt months in advance, a nasty surprise for Black in this position. What was it?

Very good ANZARBOND!!! I guess this puzzle is a little too easy but many players will miss this simple move. Until next time! :)
