This position from the game, which was played in 1977 on the second world championship among computers in Toronto. White played American program \"Duchess\", black played Soviet \"Kaissa\" - the first world champion among computers. All of a sudden black played 34. ... Re8 and after several moves resigned. Commentators have tried to explain this move by the crash of the computer. What was everyone\'s shock when after the game \"Kaissa\" explained its 34th move with such variant : 34. ...Kg7. Stop!

Can you find a nice win for white after 34....Kg7? As written English chess magazine single human player during the game never saw this spectacular combination.
Good luck!
