Question from nerdX in #chess...

Well probably cause of the Black Rook at a6, which is putting the White King in check. Of course the Black Rook can be blocked by the White Knight at f7, with 1. Nd6, but Black can then play 1... Rxd6#. I wonder what program nerdX was playing (could it be ChessMaster?).
