I've faced this opening variation a few times as Black, OTB, so it's an important position, but this ..Nh6 move should be losing by force. I'm glad you pointed out it's drawback and then still stuck with the game for it's tactically instructive value, particularly since I think that this was possibly his most dubious opening move of the video series.

I didn't pause the video at this point, but I think there might have been a Re2 defense (covering f2) before playing Nf1 in that Bg2 defense line (and then the ..Qg3 is kicked out) because I think the other knight is still on f3 covering h2 - if this is true, then Black got in ...Qf2+ free for the taking.
