Uh, 9. Qd2 transposes to an old main line, after which both sides can play various reasonable ways during the next 50 or so moves.

On 9. Qd2 Black can play play this way.

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. Be3 Bg7 7. f3 O-O 8. g4 Nc6 9. Qd2 Nxd4 10. Bxd4 Be6 11. O-O-O Qa5 12. a3 Rfc8 13. h4 Rab8 14. Nd5 Qxd2+ 15. Rxd2 Bxd5 16. exd5 b5 17. Kb1 a5 18. h5 Nd7 19. g5 Bxd4 20. Rxd4 Rc5
21. b4 Rc3 22. hxg6 hxg6 23. Kb2 axb4 24. Rdh4 Nf8 25. Rxb4 Rxf3 26. Bxb5 Ra8 27. a4 Re3 28. Bc6 Ra5 29. Rb8 Re2 30. Kb3 Kg7 31. Bb5 Re4 32. c4 Ra7 33. Ra1 e6 34. Rd8 exd5 35. cxd5 Nh7 36. Rxd6 Nxg5 37. a5 Nf3 38. Rb6 Nd4+ 39. Kc3
Nxb5+ 40. Rxb5 Rc7+ 41. Kb3 Re3+ 42. Ka4 Re4+ 43. Rb4 Re2 44. a6 Rd7 45. Rb6 f5 46. d6 Kf6 47. Kb5 Rb2+ 48. Kc6 Rxd6+ 49. Kxd6 Rxb6+ 50. Kc7 Rxa6 51. Rxa6+ Ke5 52. Rxg6 Kd4 53. Rd6+ Ke5 54. Kc6 f4 55. Rd7
and this is leading to a draw game.

As long as the bishop isn't exchanged, he can't mate you down the h file, so why worry?

probably black should try to transpose to 9.g4 with 8...Nc6 but if white don't play 9.Qd2 then I think on:
a) 9.h4 Qb6 is good for black
and on
b) 9.g5 Nh5

It seems that it will only transpose but what if it doesn't.

A certain expert played this against me and I felt oblged to play normally yet he then played 9.h4 and it started to look iffy, he did eventually play Qd2, but for a while it was scary. We ended in a draw with there being moves that he could have made better. Since this was in a speed game I think both of us cold have made better moves along the way. I was wondering if anyone had encountered this hyper-attack, as unsound (or transpositional) as it probably is.
