This is a good problem. It just uses the same tactic used by Dragoun. My criticism (as I already told Bala) is that active pinning or selfpinning of black pieces seems more like a helpmate theme — Of course used here nicely in a hs#

To my suprise, most of the participants to the 45th Latvian Chess Solving Championship 2018 failed to solve a very similar looking problem (no 7 in the 1st round). Solvers, next time you should read and solve Julia’s Fairies as mandatory preparation for the competition! 🙂
