Rundlauf is always interesting (even if double rundlauf has been done already). Nice problem combining black switchback also!

Rundlauf is interesting only as much as the motivations for it. Round trip without a motivation to annihilate some piece is purely motivated by a proper synchronization of the play.
Here, bK's access to f4 and g3 would be impossible if Pd2xRe3 happens too early. Therefore, wB can't count on Be1-d2 or Be1-c3 to unguard g3. Most interesting is that while wB can't pass through d2 in one direction, it can do it in the opposite direction. A one-way valve.
