Strange twomover. The only expressive theme is Le Grand between last try and solution. During play you can find many line combinations (1...c6! and 1...Gf5 are Barulin defences and there are more), but somehow everything is messed. It seems I like this work more than anybody else...

Here everything is clear. Simple demonstration, that Zagorujko 3x2 with included change of function key-variation, is really simple in stalemate problem.

Helpselfmate is very interesting genre. I was very satisfied with this one because it shows great orthogonal-diagonal analogy. During Christmas I received the award of competition where it competed - and it was totally ignored by (here unnamed) judge. A few much worse problems entered the award but this one didn't. Pity.

Personal rating: B.

1.Bf2? Sd6+!
1.Bf4! th. 2.Sg3+ Rxg3#
(1...Sg5~ 2.b7~+ Gd5#)
1...Sxh7 2.bxc8G+! (2.b7~+? Kf5!) Gd5#
1...Sxh3 2.b8G+! (2.b7~+? Kf4!) Gd5#

Very heavy position for only 2 variations. I was not very successful in constructing...

But on the bright side we have 2 grasshopper promotions motivated the following way: defence motive of any Sg5 move is opening g6-g3, error lies in opening h5-d5. But any of two real knight moves carries also dual avoidance motive - capture of white unit holding the king's flight. And what is the main point: this dual avoidance cannot be considered as the second defence motive as threat covers squares in question (f4, f5) one more time. So: defence and dual avoidance motives are sharply divided.

Personal rating: C.

1.Gh6? Gxa3!
1.Ga6? Gxd1!
1.Ge1! zz
1...Gxa3 2.Gc4+ Rb3#
1...Gxe1 2.Bd4+ Bd2#

Echo diagonal-orthogonal, some grasshopperal motivation and change of covering of possible flights d6, e6. This last point would probably miss everybody, that's why I emphasize it.

Personal rating: C.
