Threefold echo. It took incredibly long time to publish this problem, I composed it 3 years ago.

I tried to show known mechanism of Kiss cycle doubled. Also, there are two other changes in 1...Bf3 and 1...RHc7~ variations.

Echo mates in using unusual White maximummer condition. Possibly it has bigger potential...

Reciprocal change of continuations in threemover. It is, of course, well known also from orthodox problems. I tried to stress the motivation using chosen fairy elements, locust&transmuting king combination. It was brought to my attention by Yves Cheylan's #2 using them too. Also, I was trying to use whole board for play. Black in all thematical variations blocks very far potential flights, but white continuations are changed as white mates always by different pieces.

Personal rating: B.

It is already well known that I time to time produce some echo problems. The computers are of great help here as I can't imagine cook testing without them now already in twomovers and what to do in longer helpproblems? Here was of the greatest help VKS, a program by Vaclav Kotesovec.

The problem itself is one of my best echo works. Someone can protest against zeroposition, but I can argue that it is at least produced in unified way. And the content? In every position there are two solutions of equal length ending in different mates. But there are echos between position. I think it is something etraordinary - 11 moves, 4 pieces only and 4 phases. Yes, the play is boring - but one cannot expect too much...
