Shown is the Banny theme 1. d3?, d4? Qe7!, Bxd8! and in the solution 2. d3#, d4# on 1.. Bxd8, Qe7. The try keys reappear as mates in the solution on their reversed refutations from the tries. A side variation is 1.. PxR 2. QxP#. Commendation. Московский конкурс, Шахматная композиция (4\) 1992.

Юрий Михайлович Бережной, Russian composer.

Вячеслав Георгиевич Копаев (* 18.3.1938 in Moskva, 28.5.2005) Russian composer and International Master, see wikipedia lv, ru. "Vyacheslav Kopaev's 1st place in the 3-mover section of the 2nd WCCT (1980) can be quoted as an example of the current WCCT 9 theme ... which already won another WCCT! What is more amazing is that 20 years later Kopaev won even another section of WCCT, which gives a glimpse on his remarkable skills in all composing genres."

before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through use of the moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to unblock bishop and block queen to mate with knight double check [or rook double check\knight] after some black move, white's dthree starts
