With computers now beating top players at Go, and having long conquered chess and backgammon, it is slightly gratifying to find that the world's leading chess computers cannot solve the puzzle below. They might, given powerful enough hardware, no doubt. Yet four of the world's leading players at the time, Kasparov, Nunn, Speelman and Timman solved it in under half an hour when given it 35 years ago.Maybe there is some hope for mankind yet.
