It's White to move and checkmate Black in 36 moves. I have slightly changed the original stipulation. Feel free to explain the title if you want to!

*Oleg Pervakov and Karen Sumbatian, Shakmaty v SSSR 1990

P.S.-How has the title NEVER been taken before? It's crazy that such a simple phrase HASN'T been taken yet!
