White to play and win
Is it:Nh5 Rxh5 Rxg6+ Kxg6 Re6#
Is it important because I featured it here!?!?
Its the first ever chess puzzle, by Al-Adli from 976, or something vaguely like that!PG
You're all right in your various ways.It seems I read and recall T.C.'s posts just as well as he does mine!I think it's worth pointing out that the only reason we can still play this puzzle even though it's 1000+ years old is because it didn't feature queens or bishops - they moved differently back in them days.
Or at least as well as TC recalls theory :)
