Self-mate in the Sicilian

Here is an amusing trap - if that is not too grandiose a word - in the Sicilian. According to my sources, Slavoljub Marjanovic played White. However, since GM Marjanovic wasn't born until 1955, nine years after this game, he can't be blamed for it.

In a selfmate, white *forces* black to mate him, against black's will. This is a helpmate, not a selfmate.
