    I don't know if what I played is a thing or not (I suspect it's not), but had you taken with the bishop first, then you wouldn't have dropped a piece and might even be considered better (?) with a continuation such as

    with either 9.hxg3 or 9.Qb3
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Yea I think that did go through my mind at one point

    But thanks, I shouldn't fall for that on a OTB game!

    Yes, I think white is slightly better after 9. hxg3. The white king will go to g2 via f1, and Black's kingside is slightly weak. If black castles queenside, white can push his queenside pawns, black will push his. I would favor white slightly, but that is just me.

    BTW, he can just leave his king in the centre as well, or even castle queenside with correct preparation.
