1...Sd3 closes h7-b1 (AZE), so the bBh7 has to go via g8. Luckily, this at the same time allows black to perform unobvious indian on the 8th rank 3.Qh8! (Qe5/Qe1?) ... 4.Bg8 Ke8

I like this problem a lot!

Yes, it's incredible how the very first move determines the complete subsequent unique play during 8+8 moves, without technical pieces. And what a play! An extraordinary experience.
