A long selfmate with two variations is in itself an achievement. The play in both is good. However, not an AUW as no distinct variations for Q/B promotions.

I am always very impressed by economical long selfmates with two (or more) distinct full-length variations: is it luck or magic intuition from the composer that both variations work in exactly the same high number of moves?

So I am impressed by this too, although it must be said that Bd1 has no function in the c1S line.
