    Yes, rxb7 on move 15 and the position shakes badly but in unrated play I (and my opponents) tend to play more fun than technically correct moves.

    a3 probably swaps off the bishop for knight leaving White with a better centre but not conclusive (at this level).

    I think I prefer my opponents 6th move which develops and unpins the king.

    The reason I suggested a3 is because I play 1. f4 and playing h3 for white can backfire spectacularly.

    In this game a3 can lead to the following:


    Now if white plays. 8. e5, the the knight has to undevelop back to g8

    Probably just enjoying the fun of making the opponents king take a long walk.

    Any other examples? (end games do not count)
