He Triple-Jumped Me!

This position is presented in Efstratios Grivas' latest "A Chess Odyssey" column at ChessCafe.

Watch how White wins: 4.Qa8+!! Kxa8 5.Nxb6+ Kb8 6.Nxd7+ Kc7 7.Nxf8 1–0

Is this the closest thing to a checkers triple-jump that you'll see in chess?

Grivas provides a number of similar examples where the winning side executes a beautiful combination after first driving the enemy king to an "ideal" square.
