    Nice problem, but was is the threat? No grasshopper can go to a2 after key, but 2.Gb3# is possible. Misprint?

      Thank you, Kenneth! Corrected. It was author’s misprint, but my fault is that I haven’t realized it.
      I’d like to ask authors to be more careful about diagrams and solutions. I test problems, but usually use the solutions as sent by authors.

    Nice changes. I think this cycle has been done in orthodox problems. (fivefold?) Nevertheless a very interesting problem with G-motifs. Of course it is very difficult when the threat is same in both phases.
