    Very nice problem! After the try 1.Re1?Qh8! there are nice white continuations
    1….b3 2.e4! 1….Kc5 2.e3!

    So the problem also shows the Vladimirov theme!

  2. Kjell Widlert says:

    Very natural correspondence between the white and black thematic moves: e2-e3 and e7-e5 both guard d4, and e2-e4 and e7-e6 both guard d5.

    Also fine that the defences are motivated by Another mate, using Pe2’s guard of e3.

  3. Nikola Predrag says:

    Nice. The tries with tempo moves 1.Re1/g1 should better not be mentioned since they just repeat the set play, especially because of the duals after 1…Kc3.

    “Vladimirov” is paradoxical and “Banny” is not.
