The law of Bruno's fixed dates:
2#: On odd days. Special case 2(*): 7. On 3, 11, 25, 31 always a (supposedly) hard 2# with (at least) 3 stars.
3#: On even days, except 6, 14, 22, 28 which are reserved for moremovers.
4#: 6, 22
5#: 28
6#: 14

The key 1. Bf8 keeps the bK in the upper right corner and threatens 2. Rf3 3. Rh3#. The variations are 1.. Rb3, Bb3, Bb4, Bb6 2. Rxf5, g4, g3, Rxd6 followed by a R-mate on the b-file. Not that hard.
