I have first seen this position in Anthony Saidy's book "The World of Chess". This is a chess problem found in one old Arabian book from 8th or 9th century, I am not sure. Very nice indeed.

Check the king no matter what,thats the only thing a noobie should know

And the first thing you should learn not to do if you ever hope not to be a noobie. See if the check leads anywhere by all means, but don't check just because you can.

This finish reminded me of a famous game between Clemenz and Eisenschmidt - you can Google it. (But they played quite a few, so it will take time.)
