I like black's idea on the final move (Rh2! hoping to provoke Kg1), however white called the bluff.

Is this website no longer being updated? I see that Andrew Kuess' variant page linked in the previous comment is still "currently hidden pending approval by the Chess Variant Pages editorial staff."

If there's still an admin actively approving new variants, let me know and I'll add the best variants I've invented to this site.
