When I propose a theme for the tourney I secretly hoped that I’ll see at least 3-phase change of 2 mates, combination of several themes/ideas. Unfortunately participants composed nothing of the sort.
A quantity of sent entries is very few – only 7 entries, herewith in most of its ideological content is limited only by implementation of the tourney theme.

Award is the following | Отличия распределились следующим образом

Change of 3 mates in 2 phases + change of 1 mate in 3 phases + change of functions of 3 Black moves “refutation – defense” + change of functions of 1 White moves “threat – mate”. In the try there is a play of battery, in the solution – an elimination of this battery. Repeated mates on different defenses strongly reduce the impression of the problem.

Correction of Black Bishops’ play. Simple change-mates 3x2 is realized purely + change-play 2x2, but unfortunately there are repeated mates in one of phases.

Simple change-mate on 1...Qc4 and random change of 2 mates. It is the only problem with random change-play in this tourney but in the initial position there are dual mates on bQ moves that is a big shortcoming for block-problem.

It is the only problem sent for the tourney in which a key is a flight-giving. But this fact, of course, does not justify the existence of technical White Knight that doesn’t participate in the solution phase.
