Bukovinszky-Garai theme

H#2: A variation of the Bukovinszky theme: The short set play ends with mate A. With Black's first move, the piece giving mate A is captured. After the first two halfmoves of the solution, mate B is ready. Under zugzwang, Black destroys this mate as well, which eventually leads to mate C.
