Well, White has surely lost a couple of tempi for no good reason somewhere.I'll have a pop at 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 d4 3.e3 c5 4.b3 Nc6 5.Bb2 Nf6 6.h3 e5 7.Be2 e4 8.Nh2 d3 9.Bf1 Nb4.
To paraphrase Eric Morcombe's memorable retort to Andrew Preview,you've got all the right notes, not necessarily in the right order.Well not quite. White's lost tempo came from Qd1-c2-d1 rather than Bf1-e2-f1.Move 6 (h3 and ... e5) you have correct.
Very kind of you not to identify the player of the White pieces--how very short of oxygen he must have felt!
Indeed warheit, though I should have pointed out White's restricted position at this point didn't prevent him from securing a draw in the end.
I was really, really hoping that wasn't the punchline.

Could have been worse ...I blundered badly when at the point of breaking into his position. He probably missed a clear win then forced a draw by perpetual when he still had chances to attack.
