1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Bxc6 dxc6 5. O-O Bg4 6. h3 h5(!) 7. hxg4(?) hxg4.
White's 7. hxg4 is supposed to be some sort of epic hideous blunder since after his knight moves (for example) 8. Nxe5, then black goes 8. ... Qh4 and white is toast.
But white can simply play 8. g3 and after 8. ...gxf3 9. Qxf3 material is equal and no attack!!
I just took a quick superficial look, but in your variation, black has gained a lot. White has not played d4 and created the favorable endgame. His kingside is weakened. Black has a nice open h file, attacking chances (Qd7/Qh3 or such) and no worries at all. Black has not only equalized, he may have a slight advantage, as white's plan is not at all clear. hxg4 is a blunder of sorts, for misplaying white's prospects, but it may not lose by force. * There may be even better moves for black, I just took a quick glance.
Hope this helps.
