  DanielBryant: Why did Black capture unprovoked on move 9? I wonder if he could have found a more productive use of that tempo.

  LoveThatJoker: <DanielBryant> You are indeed correct that 9...Bxf3?! was uncalled for.

After 10 minutes of analyzing the position, Stockfish came up with the following improvements,

A) 9...Qb6 10. Ne5 Rad8 11. Rc1 Be6 12. e3 Ng4 13. Bd4 c5 14. cxd5 Nxe5 15. Bxe5 Bxd5 16. Bxd5 Rxd5 17. Bxg7 Kxg7 18. Qe2 Qd8 19. Ne4 Rxd3 20. Nxc5 Nxc5 21. Rxc5 b6 <+0.28/20>

B) 9...Rc8 10. h3 Be6 11. a3 b5 12. Rc1 Qb6 13. Ng5 Bd7 14. c5 Qb8 15. b4 e5 16. Ngf3 Rce8 17. d4 exd4 <+0.36/20>

  DanielBryant: <LTJ> Thanks for analyzing it. It's somewhat surprising that he didn't at least go for 9...Rc8 since he was clearly planning on controlling that file anyway.

  LoveThatJoker: <DanielBryant> I'm glad that Stockfish could be of service here! :)

9...Rc8 would have been better indeed.

Deep Fritz 13's Opening Book found this while considering alternatives to Black's 8th move. It's relevant here in that certain ideas reached in that game somewhat resemble the output given by Stockfish for 9...Rc8.
