Second try refutation 1.Kf1? (Zz) Sc3! seems unique, but the continuation 2.Ke2? seems to fail also due to g2 flight.

You’re right, Juraj!
I have sent a correction to Julia:
1.Kf1? (not Zz, but threat 2.Bh8, 3.Bh7P & h8Q/R#) Sc3!
Extending the try by 2.Ke2+? was wishful thinking (and sloppy testing!).

More sloppiness on my part:
After 1.Bc3!, there is no Zugzwang, but a threat with the same moves as the “variation” given earlier: ~ 2.Kf1 ~ 3.Bh8 ~ 4.Bh7P & h8Q/R#.
Correction sent again to Julia. No change in the diagram.
Apologies for disturbing her year-end.
