1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 h6!? by Ashot Nadanian

IM Ashot Nadanian is quite an interesting guy:
Nadanian's Fide Chess Profile 
An Oct 2012 interview to Ashot Nadanian 
Here, as we have an UCO perspective, we want to mention his opening contribution 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 h6!?
And for your pleasure, here you can see him in action in a blitz game againts GM Pinter  :

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 h6 3.c4 g5 4.Nc3 g4 5.Nd2 Bg7 6.e4 d6 7.Be2 h5 8.Nb3 a5 9.Bg5 a4 10.Nd2 a3 11.b3 Nc6 12.Be3 e5 13.d5 Nd4 14.Nb5 Nd7 15.Rc1 f5 16.exf5 Nc5 17.0-0 Bxf5 18.Bxd4 exd4 19.Re1 0-0 20.b4 Na4 21.Nb3 d3 22.Bf1 Bh6 23.N5d4 Nb2 24.Nxf5 Rxf5 25.Bxd3 Nxd1 26.Bxf5 Bxc1 27.Rxd1 0-1
If you are interested in this strange opening system (it remimds me an improved macho Grob), you may be interested to know that there is an article on it in SOS Secrets of Opening Surprises n° 5   By the way that book contains another article of interest for the UCO player based on 1.d4 c6 2.c4 b5!?!
 At last, we wish to mention that the series SOS Secrets of Opening Surprises contains so many gambit and UCO chess ideas and there is a Clearance Sale  at the NEW in Chess site.... Hurry up!
March 17th 2013 update:
In their book "Genius in the background" (2009), Tibor
Karolyi  and Nick Aplin spent a whole chapter on Ashot
