Judge Ivan Soroka 07/2023:
"1.Qxf5+? Bf4+ suggests itself, but 2.Qb1. How about implementing the same plan by rook instead of queen? 1.Qf8? (>2.Rf7) but 1…Rb1! The try 1.Sh4+? Kf4? 2.Sg2+ Kf3 3.Qh5+ g4 4.Rf7! also fails: 1…gxh4! Moreover, 1.Bd4,Bb8? (>2.Rf2+ Ke4 3.Qxf5+ K(x)d4 4.Qe5+ Kd3 5.Qe3+ Bxe3#), 1…cxb5! Another foreplan is found, this time on the queenside: 1.Bg1! (>2.Rf2+ Ke4 3.Qxf5+ Kd4 4.Qe5+ Kd3 5.Qe3+ Bxe3#) cxb5 2.Qb7+! Bxb7 3.Rf7!(>4.Rxf5+) Be4 4.Sge5+ Kf4 5.Be3+ Bxe3#. A brief but intense logic of the two sides’ encounter, with changed functions of White’s queen and rook. As always, Camillo’s inimitable style is displayed."
