Nice formation of batteries. Though the twin moves a thematic piece, the overall effect is very good! Would have fared in the Zabunov tourney !

Well, Ram here we have white battery play and creation of new white batteries, but the second thematic batteries are created later. For Zabunov theme the front piece of the first battery should move direct on the second thematic battery line on its firing move, not later.
So the thematic content here is white battery play and creation of new white (Royal) batteries + creation of black batteries, but not Zabunov theme.

A very good strategy with excellent battery play. Altogether 3 batteries are involved. I don't know the exact definition of Zabunov theme; but it is hard to believe that this problem does not satisfy Zabunov theme!

this stipulation continues to delight. It's hard to think of a more influential new form. This is a wonderful problem in an excellent setting!

.......not Zabunov theme.

Hm....Delayed Zabunov? !!
