There is superb overall harmony by way of three pin-mates on the same square! Still solutions 1 and 2 make a pair and 1/3 make another pair! Well done Zivko!

I am sure this pattern like HOTF will be popular to bring more themes to h#2 genre!

I suggest we call this "Janevski" pattern!

Very nice problem. Construction is very good. Capturing of bPg3 can be eliminated by adding a black Rook. However I am not sure that this is an improvement:
