Beginner’s Opening Revisited

A while back I did a post on the Beginner’s Opening.  I foolishly decided to try it in a game against an ICCF Senior Master, no less!  The result was a sound defeat.
The position after 22…Bxg2? Was the one I discussed in a post concerning the Komodo engine.  After 5-1/2 hours Komodo had analyzed the position 13 moves deep and was showing the position as equal. It's recommendation began with 1...Bxg2 2.Nde4. 1...Bxg2?? is a horrible move because after 2.f3 Black loses a piece.
