Problem 985: Zivko Janevski - Helpmate
zivko.janevski(02.05.2019) Very nice Helpmate in light construction by the Macedonian maestro Zivko Janevski. 
1.Kd5 f3 2.e5 Be6#
1.e6 f4+ 2.Kf6 Rxe6#
Combination of Janevski theme with consecutive Pawn's double step (Black and White) and mates on the same square in an economical Gravure position!

I received an email from Zivko Janevski where he send a file with award of the 6th Thematic Tourney of The Macedonian Problemist 2016-2018, with Janevski theme. Here is the definition:

Janevski theme: In a h#2 in one phase the same black piece self-blocks a square adjacent to the black king and in another phase it sacrifices itself on the mating square from the previous phase.

This is something like the theme of Chumakov. The difference is that the blocking piece is sacrificed on the mat square.
