Hidden Gems in Chess 960

Some starting positions in Chess960 include "Hidden Gems". The game I show here features a bishop coming out of the corner to snatch up a pawn and later for a discovered attack. Another fun moment in this game are the castling moves. Just as the king position is getting opened up, the king jumps 5 squares in one move from b8 to g8!

As far as the opening goes, I was probably outplayed and didn't get very good piece placement. My opponent bailed me out by swapping for an inactive bishop.
