My parents played chess activly when I was a kid and (naturally) I wanted to play this strange game. But... the condition to play with my dad was to solve this chess puzzle. My mother teached me the rules and next day I was in my room with the puzzle... It was mate in four and I just learned the rules and i was 8... After 15 min I was so angry I could't solve it so my father revealed me the secret.
Yes it was so easy and nice! And it was my first battle OTB! I will never forget this one! I don't know who was the mastemind but my father told me that it was Fischer himself. After so many years I didn't find that information so if someone knows (maybe my father was wrong) let me know please.
OK so here it comes...
This is a variation of an old puzzle. The theme is the same, with a mate in 4.
