Excellent problem in twins form where, besides thematic bicolor Kniest, also Maslar and bicolor Bristol are realized. In similar problems from WinChloe (that are pointed out by the author himself) there is no bicolor Kniest in twins form.

It is very good problem too. In twins form, besides the tourney theme, also Zilahi and Helledie themes are realized. That is why the problem produces strong impression.

Editorial. Helledie theme – h#3-4 where the motive for the first Black move become apparent only after the second White move has been played, or later. (Definition from “Encyclopedia of Chess Problems”, by Velimirovic & Valtonen)
